CD of the Day, 2/15/06: Tide-Tide

Not to be confused with The Tyde, Brooklyn's Tide has put out one of the more impressive releases in this new year. The best way to describe Tide's sound is Guided by Voices meets The Kinks (hmmmm..Robert Pollard vs. Ray Davies, probably a closer fight than Westerberg vs. Cuomo). There's also some Fountains of Wayne in there as well. My faves are "Never Knows Your Name" (a killer track), "Over Me", and "Satellite".

"Never Knows Your Name" and three others are streaming at myspace, while 2-minute samples of all the tracks are at the CD Baby page for the album, the best (and apparently only) place to buy it right now.

As they say in Alabama, Roll Tide!

Great blog! I picked up the
Tide album on the strength of Chris Powers' solo ep's. If you haven't already checked it out, look for the Last Exit ep on CD Baby. It's fantastic.

Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely look into that one!
