New Music: Smith Westerns- Varsity + More Recent Releases & Music News
The kids in Chicago indie band Smith Westerns have just announced they will be releasing their third LP, Soft Will, to the world on June 11th. The first single from the new LP is titled "Varsity," an aptly named song for a bunch of twenty somethings who are young enough to be in college. The new track moves the band away from their British glam rock origins and to more of a dream pop sound. Listen below:
Soft Will is out June 11th via Mom + Pop
Surfer Blood have dropped a second single from their forthcoming new album Pythons. The LP now has a release date of June 11th (same as Smith Westerns-see above) through Warner. Listen to "Demon Dance" below:
Iggy & The Stooges are one of those bands that should probably stop recording new material and concentrate on their live shows. That being said their new track "Burn" is not bad. Listen below:
From Ready To Die which is out April 30th via Fat Possum
Watch a new video from Unknown Mortal Orchestra for "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)" but be forewarned after I watched it I could not get the picture of masturbating puppets out of my head.
