MIKAL CRONIN: Tide: 7”

Simple and effective laid-back tunage heavily influenced by the clean-cut bands of the ‘60s, yet establishing what some are very eagerly considering a new California sound in real time. Spot-on job of laying down carefully crafted, somber verses and then just pulling the rug out from under it all as soon as the chorus hits. The melodies alone might make this record worth it, but it’s all pretty killer.
