Wing Dam, Lilac Shadows

When: Wed., July 15, 9 p.m. 2015

Baltimore’s Wing Dam and Durham’s Lilac Shadows excel through similar alchemy—namely, transforming dense psych-rock and shoegaze textures into infectious art-pop. The touring band has a little more rock ’n’ roll swagger, as their easygoing tunes frequently surge into swells of energetic solos. But this instrumental wizardry never overshadows the group’s compositional acumen. The sound of Lilac Shadows is more monolithic, with layers of immersive distortion and propulsive bass building into catharses. Sam Logan’s crisp vocals and eager melodies counter this serious exterior with disarming sweetness. —Jordan Lawrence
