Tennis and Wild Ones

Tennis is from Denver, Colorado. Alaina Moore sounds wise beyond her years and Patrick Riley always has his hair over his eyes. This band seems to be having a blast on stage. My favorite song is “100 lovers” which has a plodding baseline that reminds me of Beck. “Mean streets” is another highlight. Check out “Timothy” and “Bad Girls” if you like… I don’t know, good music! There are echoes of Blondie, the Cardigans, Madonna, The Beach Boys, Summer Twins, Belaire, Jenny Lewis, Rilo Kiley, etc…

Wild Ones from Portland play a darker version of pop, sometimes approaching Phantogram and electronica. They were also very good.
