Chicago's Smith Westerns will release its sophomore LP, Dye It Blonde, on Fat Possum on Jan. 18. The record was produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, !!!, TVOTR, Beach House, etc.) Full of beautiful colors, the video for the first single "Weekend" was directed by Focus Creeps and gives you an idea of what a typical weekend is like for the band in their native Chicago. Smith Westerns will be in Austin on February 7 for a show at Emo's.
