Tides of Man have crafted one of the best instrumental albums we’ve heard so far this year. Young and Courageous plays like a fine barrel aged whiskey, full of character yet artfully balanced. The songs seemingly melt into one another but still erupt with powerful guitar and percussion work. The result is a textured sound that is a must have for fans of the genre.
Let’s throw it back to the 90’s with Suburban Serfs. The Long Beach, CA outfit has a sound that is reminiscent of Pavement, Built to Spill, and others.
