Song of the Day: “All Die Young” by Smith Westerns

Today’s song is “All Die Young” by Smith Westerns. This is a new single of the Chicago trio’s sophomore LP, Dye It Blonde. The album was released January 18th on Fat Possum and was produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, !!!, TVOTR, Beach House, etc.) in New York City. The band has already won wide acclaim based on its self-titled debut, originally released in 2009 via the Chicago label HoZac while all of the band members were still enrolled in high school.
