I distinctly remember the first time I heard a Tennis song. I was shopping at UO in LA and I told my buddy Scott that the song playing (“Origins”) reminded me of that part in Home Alone where Kevin is dancing in his living room with all those cardboard cutouts to “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” Anyone? No? Just me? Well, I thought the song was so good that we headed to Amoeba afterwards and picked up Tennis’ album and we’ve been fans ever since. I was STOKED for the show at The Troubadour for weeks. And not just because Tennis reminds me of Home Alone and Home Alone reminds me of Christmas and I love Christmas. But because I’ve loved every single song Tennis has put out and if you haven’t listened you definitely should. Get their latest record Ritual In Repeat here and check out the tour dates here.
