ALBUM REVIEW: dye it blonde

I am browsing the web as I listen to Smith Western's sophomore album Dye it Blonde. So far so good. Smith Western's signature guitar style is evident across the entire album. It's a repeat worthy album for sure. I give it a 7/10. I'm really liking the fast paced track "dance away." I like the diversity in this album. Its not just a compilation of ten songs that sound like "weekend." Each song stands apart. I guarantee that I will be able to identify them by ear after six listens.

favorite tracks: weekend, still new, all die young, only one, smile, dance away, dye in the world

Listen to the entire album at NPR for a limited time.
