This post goes out to my older sister who is getting married in October.

From Last.fm – “Tennis is Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, a husband/wife duo. The idea for the project began one day a couple of years ago when Alaina made fun of Patrick for playing Tennis in college. A year later the two fled their hometown Denver to spend eight months sailing and exploring the North Atlantic coast. During their adventures they began writing music together documenting their experiences.”

Well, isn’t that adorable? They’re making beautiful 50’s lo-fi pop and her voice is absolutely perfect. This album has grown on me immensely and each listen through gets better than the first. 2011, you’re delivering quite well on the tune-age front.

Tennis – Marathon

Cool NPR article on them:
