2011 Review (So Far): Smith Westerns

Smith Westerns' sophomore album Dye It Blonde is fun, impossibly catchy and a great follow up to their self-titled debut that showed a lot of promise. The record is dancy, melodious and features phenomenal interplay from the two guitarists, Max Kakacek and Cullen Omori. The two have great chemistry; Omori carries the song forward as Kakacek brings the house down with his bright and bold licks.

Check out the album-opener "Weekend" and then go pick up the album; it's a great listen!


  1. Love this album. So good. Dance Away is my favorite song.

  2. This is a brilliant album. The riffs on "Imagine Pt. III" get stuck in my head for days.
