Dye It Blonde

Genre: Indie Rock

This Chicago band?s sophomore full-length is bursting with cocky glam-rock riffs and dazed but enthusiastic vocals, all run through a fashionably fuzzy filter. The influences are easy to spot — T. Rex, Cockney Rebel, and ELO all come to mind at various points — but Smith Westerns show off their borrowed finery with such aplomb that it?s hard to dislike the end product. At the very least, Dye It Blonde is a promising step forward for a group that?s still growing into its talents. B
