This debut from Dams of the West - aka Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson - is another send up of the state of the USA in 2016. What elevates it above the scores of similar fare is his penchant for vivid lyrics, lush melodies and the Americana influences that fuel the pounding instrumentation. At its best, ‘Youngish American’ exists at the nexus of day-job classics ‘Giving Up the Gun’ and ‘Unbelievers’, offering glimpse of Chris’ massive potential to be an engaging solo star.
