A lazy decade since 2006's Three's Co. (Rough Trade) and after three failed attempts, Spiritual Pajamas brings 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, and Andres Renteria on percussion. Longtime friend and cohort Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals) also joins 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..." – Justin Gage, Aquarium Drunkard
