Now labelmates with Metric, Sleigh Bells and our own PoliÇA ON MOM + POP MUSIC, CHICAGO TRIO THE SMITH WESTERNS ARE A LOT LESS HIPSTER-Y AND QUITE A BIT MORE GENERIC THAN THOSE ACTS, ESPECIALLY ON THEIR LATEST ALBUM. “SOFT WILL” TRADES IN THE PUNKIER SOUND OF PREVIOUS RECORDS FOR SLEEPY PSYCHEDELICA AND STYLISH POWER-POP, SORT OF A CROSS BETWEEN BIG STAR’S HAZIER STUFF AND LOVE & ROCKETS. THE LEAD SINGLE FROM THE ALBUM IS TITLED “VARSITY,” SO THEY PICKED THE RIGHT VENUE. NEW-WAVY LOCAL OPENERS STRANGE NAMES HAVE BEEN GETTING CURRENT AIRPLAY WITH “POTENTIAL WIFE.” Chris Riemenschneider
