Tide Rider releases ‘Golden Eyes’ (single)

by | Feb 19, 2021 | News

Tide Rider has been developing his bedroom surf pop sound. The band is the solo project of DeBoe Truss. He plays every instruement in this project, from live drums, bass, guitar, synths, to vocals. He records and mixes his songs in his home in British Columbia, bouncing everything to tape to give it a noticeable saturation (read our interview with DeBoe about his recording process).

Today, he released his fourth single, Golden Eyes. In this single drums are out front, an analog synth is drenched in reverb and situated behind the mix, and several layers of clean electric give it the surf pop feel that shapes the Tide Rider sound. DeBoe’s vocals are doubled with a falsetto harmony that lifts the vocal blend.

His songs tend to be about relationships in his life, primarily his wife and two small children. But he writes them in a way that they’re easily relatable. He’s also one of the nicest guys you’ll talk to.

Jon Morrow releases sophomore single ‘I’m No One’

Jon Morrow is a songwriter from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, writing dreamy and personal songs. He uses a drum machine, which sounds like a beat from an old Casio (that’s a positive), a looping electric guitar running through a tremolo or vibey chorus pedal, and layers of vocals and harmonies with a high pass filter applied.

Puddlegum Studio and Plans for 2022

A 2021 developed, so did my vision. My goal was to move toward expanding the blog as a full-blown recording studio, both co-existing and supporting the other. This vision is taking shape, and the studio will be opening in the coming weeks.
