Low Tide is the nom-de-side-project of Honey White bassist Keir DuBois, who is often aided and abetted by his erstwhile bandmates. Low Tide first released the Dive E.P. in 1999, while Keir was playing bass for the Mojo Wire, and after nearly a decade in mothballs, the “band” has been resurrected to once again serve Keir’s egomaniacal needs.
Some points of reference include Lanois/Eno, Tortoise, the Mermen, Explosions in the Sky, Neil Young’s “Dead Man” soundtrack, and Nathan Johnson’s “Brick” soundtrack.
