A.L. West, McMercy Family Band, Wilson Marks, Grace Rowland

Daniel Bryson’s quartet, A.L. West, melts warm, drowsy guitar jams like late-Nineties indie bands before they had to fill a bigger-stage sound, a bedroom Built to Spill. Last November’s underrated debut LP, The Store, gently mellows behind Bryson’s reedy hum and cradling melodies. The lead-up plays equally impressive with the McMercy Family Band (Dan Grissom, Lindsey Verrill, et al.) stomping their new old-time folk, Wilson Marks drawing his playfully poetic Harry Nilsson vibes from last year’s Won’t Fit in a Song, and the Deer’s Grace Rowland stepping solo. – Doug Freeman
