Tennis are currently on tour in support of their fantastic new album, Ritual In Repeat which they released earlier this month via Fat Possum Records. This past Friday, they rolled through NYC to play to a packed Webster Hall.

Playing tracks from their entire catalog, the Denver based husband and wife duo of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley seamlessly mixed old songs with new with ease. No matter what they played from their three album (+ 1 EP) discography, they sounded even tighter live than they do on their recordings. It was my first time seeing them live and they very quickly proved that they’re an indie-pop powerhouse not to be messed with. With crisp groovy baselines, fierce drumming, stellar keyboards, shimmering guitar work and silky smooth vocals, whats not to love? Read the rest of this entry »

Tennis – I’m Callin’

By Will Oliver, August 29th 2014

Tennis

“I’m Callin'” is the first new song to be shared from Tennis’ upcoming new album Ritual In Repeat (due out September 9 on Communion Records).

It’s a feel-good pop song with a very 80s feel to it. A perfect night cap for the fading days of summer. It was produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, who produced the album along with Jim Eno of Spoon and Richard Swift.

Menace Beach – Tennis Court

By Will Oliver, August 22nd 2014

Menace Beach

Menace Beach is a duo based out of  Leeds who have caught my attention with an awesome tune by the name of “Tennis Court.” What starts out as a light and strummy affair takes a turn towards a Ty Segall-esque guitar freakout. The contrast between the male/female vocals adds a nice aspect that they work to their advantage.

It’s off their new 7″ single which comes with another song titled “Lowtalkin.” Until then, stream “Tennis Court” below.

Tennis

Denver husband-and-wife duo Tennis have announced that their new album Ritual In Repeat will be released on September 9 via Communion Music. It’s their quick follow-up their Small Sound EP, which was released last November. Production duties were handled by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Jim Eno of Spoon, and Richard Swift of The Shins & The Black Keys.

First single “Never Work For Free” is available to stream, and it’s a delightful track bouncy and bubbling, something of a pop song that be right at home in the 80s. Imagine if the radio actually recognized pop music like this? The world would be a much better place.

The song is available to download for free (ironically, of course) right now at their website (in exchange for your e-mail). Otherwise, you can stream it right now, below.

Tennis @ Rockwood Music Hall (November 5, 2013)

Earlier in the week Tennis released their new EP Small Sound on Communion Records. So it made sense that they were a major component on the traveling Communion shows, including Tuesday night at Rockwood Music Hall.

I last saw Tennis at Brooklyn Bowl last April, so it’s been a while. More than ever with the new material from the EP, it remined me that this duo has now fully been fleshed out as a full band and it shows all for the better. They play more tightly, with more confidence, than ever before. The new material mixed so well with the bands earlier material, creating on hell of a set.

Tennis continue to finds ways to improve on themselves, becoming one of the most reliable bands in the game.

Check out a few more photos from their set below. Read the rest of this entry »

[new]: Tennis – Mean Streets

By Will Oliver, October 9th 2013

Tennis

Tennis have returned with a winning new song titled “Mean Streets.” It’s off their new EP, Small Sound, which Richard Swift produced. It will be their first release on their new record label, Communion Records.

They’ve made forward progress on the new song with a little more groove and bite to their step. They sound even better than ever, which is hard to believe, since they were doing pretty damn good before. They’ve got a classic pop sound that is straight up impressive.

Take a listen below.

They’ll be in New York for two shows early in November. Some dats will be a part of Communion’s monthly club night where they will play with Savoir Adore, On An On, and Night Sweats. Find those dates below as well.

Tennis @ Brooklyn Bowl (4/10/12)

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2012 — with 1 comment


We Barbarians
were the opener for Tennis at Brooklyn Bowl this past Tuesday to my great excitement. I’ve seen them open three times now, and it has definitely made me wonder why I haven’t seen them headline yet. They do the whole big sounding arena rock thing in small venues perfectly. Imagine if Kings Of Leon tried to do what they did the last few years, except they still had a soul. You got some big fat ambitious rock and roll that is impossible to dislike. Call me a fan.

It’s been a little overdue, but I finally caught Tennis live. I hoped for good things, but what I got was pretty damn good. They sounded a lot livelier live. The sharp production that you find on Young & Old translates well live for Alaina Moore & Patrick Riley. They played most of the new album along with all of my favorites from their debut, Cape Dory. Moore is a great frontwoman, humble and at ease. She’s a pretty lady, and most of the attention is surely on her. Riley on the other hand keeps a pretty low profile, and it works. The two personalities mix well, and remind us of why I fell in love with their sea-tales last year.

By Will Oliver, December 19th 2011 — with 1 comment

Tennis have been releasing great cover after great cover this year. With their new album Young And Old on the way, the band was able to still find time to share one more cover with us. This time they covered Broadcast’s “Tears In The Typing Pool”.

It’s gentle mood isn’t lost on Tennis who are able to cover it with ease. Fans of Broadcast, what do you think?
