Young & Old

Fat Possum Records [2012]

This lo-fi surfy indie album from Denver duo, Tennis is a packaged brand of rock that is infectiously addictive to listen to. Tennis's second LP, Young & Old was produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys so the percussion on the record is distinctly highlighted. Singer Alaina Moore reminds me of The Cardigans vocalist, Nina Persson, and that's a huge compliment (since I have a very soft spot in my ticker for much of Persson's work with her group). Listen to the track "Robin" and try to deny The Cardigans connection. Tennis also come off as more relevant than expected; imagine Best Coast with a more radio friendly appeal.
