Product Description

The Tyde - Twice

It's never been quite clear whether Los Angeles based indie-pop quartet the Tyde are a side-project of act Beachwood Sparks or vice-versa--the two bands share three members in the shape of singer/guitarist Brent Rademaker, drummer Chris Gunst and guitarist Dave Scher--but Twice quietly insists that you take it very seriously indeed. A sweet, mercurial foray into lip-quivering American indie-rock infused with the blissful aroma of Creation-style schmindie ambience and the woody scent of paisley-clad cosmic country, this album is a peculiarly transatlantic proposition: are the Tyde more Felt than Gram Parsons? More Orange Juice than Dylan? You'll change your mind every song. Best to ignore the reference points, then, and look straight to Rademaker's heartfelt, sensitive quaver. "Cut me down / Run me out of town / I'll find another place to play" he sings on "A Loner", as the sort of neat, heartache-inducing jangle that Peter Buck perfected on REM's Automatic for the People chimes out around him. It's not all totally winsome, mind: the chugging "Blood Brothers" proves Rademaker hides a sharp sense of humour somewhere in his laconic drawl and the throwaway "Shortbread City" is a rowdy beer-sinker that wears its cheesy key-change with pride. --Louis Pattison

I first discovered THE TYDE by default, really. I bought "The libertines" album "up the bracket" (also a good album) and with It came a leaflet with artists on there record label "rouge trade records". The Tydes album cover stood out for me it had a totally cool design. So I investigated. The first song I herd was "Henry iiv" and then "go ask yer dad". (Fantastic songs by the way) Although a little softer than what I was use to. I still fell I love with them, to me they are unique- there is nobody like them there sound is very soothing and is a sound track that will get you through the long summer evenings. Awesomely awesome, A must for anyone's Cd collection.

If you find Beachwood Sparks too weird...... 5 Dec 2004
By David O'Brien - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What an incredible gem of an album this is.I can say the same for their debut album 'Once' as well.What The Tyde have done is take influences such as Lou Reed, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions and alt-country influences like Wilco and merged them into a coherent whole.

I believe that this band consists of Rick Mench (ex-Velvet Crush) on drums and three members of Beachwood Sparks including two Radomaker brothers.

It becomes very clear from the start that this band can write tunes.Not just songs that sound the same but songs that stand out on their own as individual pieces of work.

The album starts brightly with the Dylan-esque 'The Loner'.There is lovely keyboard and acoustic guitar sound throughtout and overall it's very pleasant.

Next up is the gem of the piece 'Henry VIII'.It's like an outtake off Lloyd Cole & The Commotions' 'Rattlesnakes'.The guitar work here is SUPERB as is the songwriting.I love the way it's a song about drugs but it doesn't sound one bit depressing ! It takes a skilful songwriter to get this right.

'Go Ask Yer Dad' is next and it contains some lovely buzzsaw guitar work.The vocals are very Lou Reed/Lloyd Cole sounding again and the song is up to the standard of the previous two.

'Best Intentions' is a very slow, quiet song but it has a big heart.Darren Radomaker sounds more like Reed on this song than any other but it really doesn't sound like a parody.It's actually fantastic and the vocal sounds really emotional.

'Crystal Canyons' is another gem.Very upbeat in tempo but downbeat lyrically.Excellent keyboard and guitars here as well.This one reminds me of Aussie band 'The Church'.

"Takes A Lot Of Tryin'" is Dylan-esque as well.'Memorable Moments' is another gem - like a mix of Dylan and Lou Reed.

Of the rest of the album, my own favourite would be 'Shortboard City' - the poppiest song on the album after 'Henry VIII'.It's very like the Beach Boys or even Supergrass in style.

Overall, this is an exceptional album.The songwriting is superb as is the musicianship.

There is something very sad at the heart of this album but like all classics, it doesn't get too bogged down in it's melancholy.

I can't speak too highly of this album....

For the Record 11 Feb 2004
By Justin Jahnke - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an exellent album. Song number one sets up a great record from start to finish. The surf city type songs are a little over the top, but they still fit in well with the entire album. This is a refreshing and original album, during these hard times of musical slop. If you're looking for something that is pleasing to the ears and interesting, then I suggest you buy this album. If you're not familiar with Beachwood Sparks, then I suggest you look into them too. They have three albums and they're all great.

"Best Intentions" is a great tune with solid lyrics. Remainder is bland. Comparisons to Lou Reed in other reviews are fanciful. Best thing I can say is you don't need to fast forward much, these songs roll along in mediocrity.

Good, better, best 21 April 2004
By alexander laurence - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Tyde are a new psychedelic group who seem fascinated with Arthur Lee and Gram Parsons. This group is supposed to be like some offshoot of the Beachwood Sparks. Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre and a member of The Warlocks are involved in the production. That means there was a lot of drugs in the studio. There is a feeling of sunlight and the nearby beaches. So this is a true LA record. It has the grit of the Hollywood Hills in the grooves. It feels very relaxed and pacific. It's good to have a group of good songs and some people who believe in them. I caught The Tyde live by accident. They were the opening band at a show. They have catchy songs. They seemed obsessed with the 1970s. The Tyde mix slow songs, much like the Velvet Underground, with some upbeat material: "Shortboard City" recalls some of the later Beach Boys. Every song, in fact, seems like some pastiche of some favorite band of the past. Super Furry Animals did a record like this a few years ago. You wonder if the band is paying tribute or is just flaunting their influences. Beauty is always important. The Tyde made be greater than I can tell.

High Tyde 20 July 2004
By Julian Stewart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Los Angeles-based quintet The Tyde have managed to avoid the perilous sophomore slump on "Twice." The album is chock-full of pop goodness from the first to the last drop, and easily surpasses the promise shown on "Once," the band's debut. Singer/guitarist Darren Rademaker shows himself to be more than a mere '60s California rock disciple on tracks like the rousing "Go Ask Yer Dad" and the Lou Reed-ish "Henry VIII." Other standout tunes include "Best Intentions" and "Crystal Canyons," both of which are dominated by swirling quasi-psychedelic keyboards. The band occasionally missteps: "Takes a Lot of Tryin'" suffers from an overdose of Santana, while the surfer's paradise of "Shortboard City" amounts to a Beach Boys novelty tune. Overall, however, this is a fine album that will retain its playability when the summer turns to fall.
