Smith Westerns – Dye The World

January 18, 2011

At first glance, Smith Westerns’ sophomore album, “Dye It Blonde” was not something to be that excited about. I liked a song here and there, but the rest seemed like the same old thing we’ve seen from Smith Westerns in the past. However, on my second listen, I realized that this band is a little more special than your everyday lo-fi band. Smith Western’s “Dye It Blonde” is well produced and full of beautiful melodies. As you can see from their closing track, this band knows how to write a song. (Added to the Loved List with a rating of 8.6/10).
