Features — By on January 11, 2011 3:25 pm

Chicago’s Smith Westerns will release its sophomore LP, Dye It Blonde (Fat Possum) on Jan. 18. Produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, !!!, TVOTR, Beach House) in NYC. The band perked ears with 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. The band just wrapped a European tour with MGMT, and just announced a sequin-studded glam saddlebag full of 2011 dates, including a NYC date on the day their record drops, and later dates with the UK band and Fat Possum labelmates Yuck.
