SMITH WESTERNS (Chicago, IL)
Signed in the summer to the excellent Fat Possum label, these midwestern teens bang out catchy lo-fi garage-pop gems with a blast of T-Rex guitar goodness!
'Chicago's Smith Westerns are yet another band singing urgent, ramshackle garage songs about teenage frustrations and longings-- with a couple of important distinctions. First, they're actually teenagers...Second, they're really good' - Pitchfork
South London boys signed to ultra-cool Brooklyn label Captured Tracks.
'Dignan Porch are several matches made in heaven. All the way from exoic Tooting, the group touch down into the effects-heavy shoegaze/dream pop world with some lovely vocals and harmonics but they really fly when they unashamedly let loose on the slacker guitar-hero stuff. We're not talking Dinosaur Jr. here, they're slightly easier on the ear than Mascis' worse excesses, but 'Tendrils' is bursting with coolness and melodies to kill or die for. on captured tracks.' - Rough Trade
Exciting newcomers with a love and passion for 50’s and 60’s style song writing and melody.
With previous form in bands including Junior Victor and The Void, they sold out their first London show in advance and are quite rightly attracting plenty of attention
