The Tyde are: Rademaker, with wife Ann Do Rademaker’s keys, Brent’s bass and vocal harmonies, Ben Knight’s clean guitar arpeggios, and Rick Menck’s deceptively simple, bouncy drum fills. On their latest album, “Three’s Co.”, the usual Tyde lineup is joined by guest Conor Deasy from The Thrills among others.
The Tyde’s journey began back in the early 90s when Rademaker and brother Brent fronted Further, the legendary L.A. indie outfit in which they first began mixing twisted, Beach Boys and Jan & Dean-influenced, suburban California harmonies with Jesus and Mary Chain and Teenage Fanclub-influenced guitar pop chaos. Recent L.A. music history cannot ignore the impact of that single band’s influence, which ignited a forest fire of notable bands to follow — Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio, Frausdots, and, of course, The Tyde — connected through common membership, brotherhood, and a shared musical vision. Dare we say their combined creative output has been unmatched since the halcyon days of late 60s L.A.?
