Here's a story for you: Denver indie-pop pair Tennis are a married couple that saved money for years, bought a sailboat, and sailed around the East Coast for eight months. The band was started from there, and their songs document their experiences on the water

Word is the band got its name when Alaina Moore was teasing her husband Patrick Riley for partaking in the "elitist rich man's sport," so it's either terrifically ironic or perfectly fitting that they should instead base early songs on the New England aquatic pastime

Cooing female vocals hymes over clacking percussion about Coconut Grove, shifting winds, and even keels, while bright jangly guitars back a wordless chorus of self-harmonizing "ooh"s. Her own vocals eventually swell into wistful girl-groupy harmonies, the overall effect coming off like Dum Dum Girls playing a low-key set at a beach party.
La Sera
Since joining all-female punk trio Vivian Girls during the spring of 2007 Katy Goodman's DIY-style bass playing and drifty-faded vocals have sent waves of adoration rippling throughout Brooklyn's pop punk circuit. Her newest band La Sera showcases her signature style, bringing her talent for creating dreamy pop songs even more to the forefront.

er inspiration sprung from an attraction to early pop hits from the 1950's and ethereal choral vocals. Her new songs contain warm celestial-pop melodies that echo with the dreamlike effect of a church choir and effuse a softer, less aggressive sound than the Vivian Girls.
Holiday Shores
Chimey guitars, reverb-soaked vocals, warbling Rhodes, echoes of years past. From Floria
