YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: "Die With Your Chin Up" by Smith Westerns

April 12. 2011 | By Katie

“Die With Your Chin Up” is a short film, directed by Ray Concepcion, about the making of Smith Westerns‘ fabulous sophomore album Dye It Blonde. This glimpse of a band on the brink of success is almost eerie—they seem like a bunch of kids who just wandered into a studio. And while technically they are a bunch of kids who wandered into a studio, the world has since fallen in love with their infectious lo-fi pop. If you’re in the mood to feel old and mediocre, “Die With Your Chin Up” will be your cup of tea.
