Two of indie rock's brightest bands join forces. The Monkeys, once given with the unenvious title of Rock 'n' Roll Saviors, are now merely a very good rock band with smart, biting lyricism and the amps to match. Chicago's Smith Westerns released "Dye It Blonde," one of the year's most lush albums, back in January. $37.
