Smith Westerns - Weekend (Weird World)

Smith Westerns - Weekend (Weird World, from the album Dye it blonde)

It took me a while to warm to this - it actually took hearing the whole album to give it the context, with its psychedelic shades of glam - but it has a place in my heart now. Maybe it's the cavernous "oooh's" of the chorus. Or the throwaway fuzz guitar riff. Or the semi-whispered male vocal. It's all very west coast for a band from Chicago.
