Chicago's Smith Westerns released their second album, Dye It Blonde, earlier this year, which is a fairly remarkable achievement considering how young they are. The band's sound tips toward glammy stuff like T. Rex, though for A.V. Undercover, they nabbed the salt-of-the-earth Tom Petty classic "American Girl." Oh yeah, all right, take it easy baby.
