-"Chicago's Smith Westerns are yet another band singing urgent,
ramshackle garage songs about teenage frustrations and longings"
-Their Album Cover for their 2009 EP is Nirvana's Nevermind Album flipped upside down chopped up with a picture of a painting of the Virgin mary holding a baby. Once they do press their Vinyl they are probably going to change the cover to avoid legal trouble.

Conclusion: They seem like such a great synthetic grunge sound that will be good for looking out the window on the bus music. Currently downloading their album and am super excited to see them live tomorrow with Florence. I can definitely hear the Nirvana influence and if your a fan of new music with hints of typical garage band sound then check this out. They're awesome!
