NPR Music's Stephen Thompson bring us new music each week.

This week's song pick is "Glossed" by the Smith Westerns, a pop-rock band from Chicago. It's off their new album "Soft Will" that comes out Tuesday, June 25.

Thompson says the album sounds like "weaponized agreeability" and certain songs "practically roll the car windows down for you."
