- Keep Moving by Hyde & Beast
1 review. Write a review for us »
Futurehead Dave Hyde and Golden Virgin Neil Bassett join forces here as Hyde & Beast for a quite timeless-sounding album of bold arranged pop with elements of CSNY and Supertramp as well as more than a nod to the psych-pop of people like The Beatles (some of the fuzz guitar lines here are well Harrison), The Kinks and Nilsson and heavy use of brass and big soulful backing vocals.
'Keep Moving' is an early highlight, reminding me an awful lot of big nu-soul mumbler Matthew E White but with the addition of a bouncy stop-start glam stomp. 'Blue', meanwhile, mixes ZZ Top-ish guitar boogie with oozing CSNY harmonies, and it exudes that deceptively intuitive simplicity that Spoon capture in their best moments. This brash '70s pop sound is a challenging one to try and copy but they make it sound like second nature. Good old-fashioned pop music like your dad used to make before pop all went wrong.
