Ending the year with some strong cuts. Put this one on repeat.
One million life points to Tennis for winning song of the day so earlier on in the competition. Just kidding it’s not a competition, it’s just great music. For their forthcoming album guitarist Patrick Riley, vocalist Aliana Moore and drummer James Barone of Tennis headed to Nashville to work with The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney. “Origins,” is a product of that session, and part of a double A-Side with another new track, “Deep In The Woods”. I am such a sucker for the back story.
Tennis announced today that their sophomore album Young And Old, will drop next February via All Tomorrow’s Parties Recordings. If these songs are any indication of what their album will sound like, lots of “Best Of” year-end lists will include these guys. There is so much do-wop sentiment going on right now. The bar for 2012 has been raised.
(I had to blog this because it makes me want to fall in love and stop being an asshole).
Watch the video for “Deep In The Woods” that premiered on RS below.
