The lovely video from Tennis is a Lynch-ian, color soaked performance piece. I never know if I'm a full-on fan of Tennis, but this video is charming as hell, in a perfectly weird way. Bonus link: a live version of "My Better Self" shot at The Earth House Collective for the possibly defunct Laundro Matinee . The live version comes off less polished and the lack of reverb makes it sound a little less like Beach House.
A little later than planned, it's finally that time for me to throw my hat into the never-ending 'album of the year list' ring. I've read a lot of posts dismissing all the end of year fanfare this time around but I enjoy reading lists and I'm sure many other of you do. The following five posts will be the albums I've decided make my favourite twenty five releases of the year, I've given them in order but naturally that seemingly changes every two minutes so is not to be taken too seriously (as if), there have been about 30/35 [...]

Lo fi, beach-y pop from Denver's Tennis just makes you feel good.

The official video for the new single from Tennis has emerged and it's a rather simple affair. Adding a visual accompaniment for the track "My Better Self" which features on their recently released album, Young & Old , the video sees the band performing the track with some hazy cut shots to a rather empty room full of a bemused looking audience. It then gets a little more odd with some synchronised dancing and dark looking laughter going on. Peep it at the top.
