Smith Westerns – “Idol” Video

By Tom Breihan / June 27, 2013

Right now, thanks to their swoony third LP Soft Will, Chicago glamsters Smith Westerns are our reigning Album Of The Week champs. They’ve already made a video for “Varsity,” maybe the best song on the album. But now they’ve got another one, for another album highlight. “Idol,” which pulls off the neat trick of being jauntily bummed-out, now soundtracks a fuzzy VHS-style clip from director Sandy Kim. In the clip, all three Smith Westerns sit, bored and self-absorbed, while a party rages around them. Watch it below.

Soft Will is out now on Mom + Pop.
