Sleigh Bells, Surfer Blood, Local Natives, Brooklyn Rider and the rap duo G-Side round out the show, which will be webcast live on NPR Music and several NPR stations, beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 18.

In case you haven't heard Smith Westerns before, you can check out a cut on this recent episode of All Songs Considered.
