É triste quando uma promissora banda por conta de mudanças ou melhor, por conta da vida mesmo, acaba entrando em um hiato e deixa um legado de quatro álbuns, ainda mais nos dias atuais, onde a dificuldade em gravar e manter um equilíbrio sonoro de qualidade é notório.
Este é o caso do trio Tideland, que começou lá no já distante 2007, e como coloquei tem quatro discos ou seriam quatro pauladas na orelha? Tanto faz, ou melhor os discos do Tideland são exatamente isso, uma estilingada nos tímpanos. Tendo como alicerces, MBV, Dinosaur Jr. e o grunge, os caras são meio que percursores desse crossover todo de shoegaze com grunge.
Se vocês por acaso não os conhece, faça um favor a você mesmo imediatamente, escolha qualquer um dos discos e aumente no talo.
Diversão e barulheira garantida.
***** Interview with Tideland *****
Tideland started in the summer of 2007. I had known Chris for a few years but meet Jon at our first practice. We all immediately hit it off and it didn't take long for us to write enough songs to start playing shows.
Q: Who are your influences?
I'd say tideland has many influences but the biggest would be bands like dinosaur jr., My bloody Valentine, Nirvana, grungy bands like that.
Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
My bloody Valentine loveless
Iggy and the stooges raw power
The Jesus lizard liar
Dinosaur jr. Where you been
Q. How do you feel playing live?
Playing live is always a lot of fun. Good, bad, whatever, we just like to have fun.
Q. How do you describe Tideland sounds?
A sonic mash of 90s grunge and shoe gaze goodness
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We've always taken a pretty typical approach I'd say. We'll book a few days or a week in a studio, go in get the drums tracks down first then follow it up with guitars bass and vocals. Most time is probably spent on guitars because there are a lot of layered tracks.
Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
The cloth, a band from Philly is a fun band to play with. Also, Big hush, from DC
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Nirvana of course haha
Q: What are your plans for the future?
Tideland doesn't really play much anymore. I've moved away from the DC area to San Francisco, so it's tough. We always try and get together to practice just for fun when I'm back in DC though.
Q: Any parting words?
I really wish tideland could be more active, it's one of the most fun bands I've been in. We've net a lot of great people and had fun touring around. Thanks for getting in touch and digging what we've done!
