Listened to the Smith Westerns, did not like it. There were some decent moments (I'm being nicer than I should), but the lyrics suck, so much sucky suck lyrics and very very tired things discussed ("Weekend", "End of the Night", "Dance the Night"). Why are they singled out above the seven hundred other bands just like this? This sounds like a TV show soundtrack that has beautiful people on it doing annoying things that were first annoying things done on the internet and now they are even more annoying and contrived.
I could see how young people like this stuff though.

Also picked up the new Destroyer and Black Mountain albums today. Listened to the first side of Kaputt, LOVE IT!
Wilderness heart I've heard already about 20 times, I LOVE that album! McBean's voice is way more dynamic (and it was already a weapon to begin with). Both him and Amber Webber sound like a Space Witch and Cosmic Wizard coming together. The acoustic tracks are epic (and I hate this word). Pick up THIS album.

From one listen to the Miniature Tigers album I have no desire to hear it again. I never hated anything, but kept feeling like "what is the point to this band". It's really a hodgepodge of all things "cool", I felt like they had some songs then were like, "okay, now lets add cool things we heard from other albums last weekend".
