Bands like the Smith Westerns make me feel like a criminally unaccomplished 24 year old. Brothers Cullen and Cameron Omori and friend Max Kakacek dropped a glam-rock garage sounding debut album while they were in high school. Then Dye It Blonde was made two years later, which sounded like an unreleased Beatles-in-their-prime album that blew critics and fans away. Have a listen (again) to the full Dye It Blonde album that was one of 2011’s best.
Now the guys are back with increased swagger, production, and songwriting. Third album “Soft Will” will be released June 25th via label Mom + Pop but you can listen to the whole album right meow.
