Smith Westerns
Prior to their Live on King Street performance last friday, the Chicago-based Smith Westerns came through to record a Live from Studio M session. Needless to say, our staff here were more than impressed with the band's melodic tunes and overall mellow vibe. Take a listen to a cut off of their new album:

Artist: Smith Westerns
Hail From: Chicago, IL
Song: 3 A.M. Spiritual
Album: Soft Will
Sounds Like: Deerhunter, Girls

Lone Bellow

This week's Gabby's Pick is a song called Bleeding Out from a band out of Brooklyn called Lone Bellow.

Formed by old friends in the south, the band began as a songwriting project when Zach William's wife was injured in an accident. He began putting his thoughts together in rhyme, then set them to music. He and his friends vowed that if his wife recovered, they  would move to NY and start their career.

We're very happy she recovered, as the result is very emotionally passionalte songs.
Their self-titled debut album is available now.

World's Worst iPod: Mac and Katie Kissoon "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep"
There was a lot of love this morning for a song that made it up to #20 in 1971 for the brother sister team of Mac and Katie Kissoon. The pair hailed from Trinidad and this was their only Top 40 hit.
