The band Smith Westerns, a longtime favorite of All Songs Considered, is set to release a new album called Dye It Blonde. It's not out until January, but we've got a sneak preview on this week's show. Also on the program, we talk about the massive renaissance of garage rock and listen to some of the new bands making beautifully sloppy guitar noise, including Burnt Ones and Demon's Claws. We also preview new music from the veteran group Gang Of Four, and close the program with some intergalactic fruitcake from Fred Schneider's band The Superions.
