Chris Tomson's Dams of the West to release LP, play SXSW this winter

Dams of the West describes itself as “the bad boy of British tennis” and “probably fifth-wave ska but maybe neo-no soul”. But it’s best defined as the solo project of Chris Tomson of Vampire Weekend. That band's world pop tendencies are audible in the project's repertoire, with flecks of Leonard Cohen and Reel Big Fish thrown in for flavor. On February 24, the band will release the album Youngish American, a collection of songs produced by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys. It will include the songs “Death Wish” (streaming) and “Tell the Truth”, for which there are music videos directed respectively by Emily Tomson and Edward Bursch. In March, Tomson will perform as Dams of the West at SXSW in Austin. While rumors of a 2017 Vampire Weekend album are in the air, nothing’s set in stone. – Will Sisskind

New Track: "Fogged Glass" - Camp Candle

Philly's own Camp Candle signed to LA-based indie label Maniml Vinyl, who will be releasing the group's forthcoming sophmore EP this February.

So raise your glasses, and let the evening take you where it must. (Photo by Joe del Tufo)

Sip that Soul Syrup with Tribe Mars Tonight

Have yourself a hefty pour of some sensually funky soul syrup with Tribe Mars, who amid a lineup change still boast the same incredible output. Now featuring the talented Vaughn Kimmons (of POPgoji and as Brown Alice), the group's interesting arrangements are only elevated by the ardent vocality of Kimmons.

Rescheduled from its original weather-postponed date and location, Tribe Mars will be joining Blossom tonight at new downtown nightclub NYX for some Sunday Sessions vibes, hosted by multitalented singer-songwriter-producer Fritzwa.

It's free, so let your soul glow up in the city's newest spot with music starting at 9pm.

Mood Music: Burials - 'Laccolith'

 Proggressive metal mavens Burials have taken shredding to a whole new level since their self-titled debut back in 2009. Though we've only seen one other release from them so far, 2013's The Tide, the boys are back with a new split with the black metal messiahs of Los Angeles, Exhausted Prayer. That split ever so appropriately dropped yesterday, on the first Friday the 13th of 2017, and its release show is tonight.

One of our favorite local doom bands Usnea will be playing, along with Chico, California's Touch Fuzzy Get Dizzy and newer outfit Tithe, with this being their first show. Get in the mood and catch them all tonight at the High Water Mark. Proceeds from the $8 show are going to Planned Parenthood.

Big Surr premieres single "Sometimes" ahead of new album.

Ahead of the March release of their new album "In Business," Nashville's favorite landlocked surf rockers unveil a beachy, fuzz filled power pop tune sure to please both the garage rocker and easy listener. Big Surr refuses to be confined by a sonic niche. They dwell in the liminal space between the lo-fi, fuzzy, trashcan garage and sweet, breezy, reverb-soaked beach. "Sometimes" is no exception. The guitar hook structures and compliments an otherwise washy collage of smooth, atmospheric guitar swells, while Helen Van's unassuming slacker vocals invite everyone in, disarming any skeptics with a charming, humble apathy. Big Surr's releases are true gifts for independent music fans in Nashville, and they've got a lot more coming our way. You can preorder their album, out on 3/10, here. - Andrew Strader
