A fine record in it's own right.

Label: Columbia
Released: 24th February 2017
Rating: ★★★

With what seems to be a shrinking space to get a record out before the next, highly anticipated Vampire Weekend record, you’d be forgiven for filing Chris Tomson’s debut solo effort as Dams of the West under the ‘side project’ banner.

That would be wrong, though. While never trying to sound too influenced by the day job musically, there’s a confidence running through that makes ‘Youngish American’ a fine record in its own right. Christopher Jones
