I know I’ve been off my blogging game for WPGU lately…but that ends today! Today, Chicago dream-pop band Smith Westerns have their third album Soft Will up for stream via NPR. The band’s previous two efforts were some of the best of their respective years, channeling T-Rex-inspired guitars with lo-fi polish. As time goes on, however, their sound has become more and more clear and concise…all while retaining the dreamy and smooth aspects that have made them a staple in the rock world. Check out the stream linked above and check back to WPGU for a full review of Soft Will later next week.
