The Tyde have always felt like my secret discovery in L.A. and I feel like I'm secretly their biggest fan. The music resonates with me. As the music transforms through the years, I similarily do too. Play it as it Lays! BTW I had a "situations change" event last year and she took my Once shirt! Motherfucker!
Favorite track: Situations.
A lazy decade since 2006's "Three's Co." (Rough Trade) and after 3 failed attempts we bring you "Darren 4" the new record from The Tyde. Songs of sea, sex and sand sprinkled with goodbyes, divorce, truthful situations and perhaps a few laughs. Joining Darren Rademaker on this journey are familiar members Brother Brent Rademaker (Beachwood Sparks), Ben Knight and Colby Buddelmeyer along with new faces Bobby Rodriguez on keys, Richard Gowen (Jonathan Wilson, Vetiver, Nick Waterhouse) on drums, Andres Renteria on percussion and longtime friend and cohort Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals) on guitar throughout, with very special guest Bernard Butler (of 90s Brit legends SUEDE) on guitar and co-vocals on “The Curse In Reverse”. The songs are fleshed out with some lovely backing vocals from Paige Stark, Chelsea Larkin and Rachel Dean.
"LA's perennial coast and canyon outfit rinse the salt off with Darren 4, their first LP in a decade. Two decades in, led by the Zelig-like Darren Rademaker, the Tyde remain kitted out in a unique bouillabaisse of sound often imitated yet never duplicated. It's not gossip if it's true. Kooks take note."

One of the best albums in recent years for road trips and for just having a good time. It has an excellent mix of styles going from folk to pop to rock. Many of the songs are just good old fashioned fun Ex. Wham, Herbamera. But My favorites are Cara, You’ll Miss it When it’s Gone, and Los Angeles Alleyway Tyler Senatore
