The Smith Westerns were certainly the youngest band that played the Showpaper/ToddP/Pitchfork benefit at Market Hotel two weeks back. The band is still somewhat raw, but the talent is clearly evident in their infectious garage-pop via Chicago. While the teenage behavior problems have gathered some recent blog attention, the music of The Smith Westerns at the Market was the real story — melodic lead guitar, hard chords, and vocal harmonies that mix both the late-60s pop and early 80’s post-punk.

This recording was captured the same as the other sets from this night. The sound quality is rough by genuine. Enjoy!
