Chicago-area garage-glam-pop foursome Smith Westerns are riding a wave of hype higher than a skyscraper right now, following rave reviews of their sophomore record Dye It Blonde and packed concert halls nationwide. Die With Your Chin Up is a 9-minute “short film” that plays more like a documentary, following the making of their latest record. It was directed by Ray Concepcion. Watch below, along with some video of the band’s live performance at KEXP’s own studio.
