Album Review

On their third album, the L.A.-based band has whipped up a bright sounding disc that is true to its Southern Californian roots. Led by Darren Rademaker, the Tyde swirl together a variety of pop strands (power pop, orchestral pop and sunshine pop) with elements of new wave and country rock to create something thoroughly delightful. The infectious album opener "Do It Again Again" surges with a rush of guitar riffs and synth flourishes. This wave of boppy melodies continues through the fuzzy guitar tune "Brock Landers" and the wonderfully hooky "Too Many Kims." The latter is built around Ann Do Rademaker's frothy synth lines and Ben Knight's piercing guitar solos. The disc hits its zenith on the Beach Boys-gone-glam "County Line," an irresistible rave-up referencing the legendary Malibu surf spot. Given the band's name and origin, it's not surprising that a number of their songs deal with the sand and surf. A pair of their more memorable, laid-back tunes (the shimmery "Glassbottom Lights" and the heartfelt love ode "Aloha Breeze") have beach-oriented subject matter. "Aloha Breeze" also benefits from the ethereal pedal steel work of Dave Scher who used to be a regular bandmember (as well as being part of the spacy country rock outfit the Beachwood Sparks with bassist Brent Rademaker). Darren Rademaker, whose voice has a bit of Lloyd Cole in it, doesn't just write about beach life. For instance, he skewers aging hipster-hood on "The Lamest Shows," a song that plays out like a Pavement slow dance number. Three's Co. makes for perfect listening while driving up a sunny coastline highway or when you just need a little bouncy pop to brighten up your day. [The U.S. release features two remixes: the synth-pop dance version of "Glassbottom Lights" done by James Figurine (aka the Postal Service's Jimmy Tamborello) and a gauzily atmospheric Nobody remix of "Don't Need a Leash."]

Years Active: '00s, '10s

When their noise pop band, Further, ended in the late '90s, the Rademaker brothers, Brent and Darren, mostly went their separate ways musically. Brent ended up forming Beachwood Sparks, while Darren started up the Tyde. After getting money from Geffen to start a band and then coming up empty, Darren drifted away from music for a bit. When his muse returned, he gathered up some friends and started playing again. With Ben Knight on bass (then guitar), Ann Do on guitar (and later keyboards), and a variety...
