Product Description

BBC Review

2011’s debut set from Denver-based husband-and-wife duo Tennis, Cape Dory, was the sort of sweet but slight affair which delighted for its duration but quickly escaped the memory. This follow-up, recorded in Nashville with The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, looks to take the step from home-recording project to band proper. And it’s largely successful in transplanting the pair’s fine ear for a melody onto rather meatier arrangements, pieces which flex with more pronounced muscles and leave slightly deeper impressions than their forerunners.

That’s not to say that Young and Old is going to send Tennis into the highest stratosphere of indie acclaim – while this is an improvement on its predecessor, the band’s MO remains much as it ever was, with originality at a premium and focus placed on charming the listener with songs that one can hum along to before a first play is through. Toe-tappers aplenty present themselves: the single Origins swells with Stax-like soul volume, over which vocalist Alaina Moore wonderfully stretches herself – think Carly Simon if the New Yorker’s best years came right after The Strokes’ breakthrough – and Petition possesses percussive clout that’s much in keeping with the work of Carney’s day job. Elsewhere, High Road’s a bright and breezy bopper every inch as sun-kissed as the escapist, ocean-going fare of Cape Dory, and both Take Me to Heaven and Traveling feature organ licks reminiscent of so much 60s soul. Indeed, Moore has described this album’s sound as "Stevie Nicks going through a Motown phase".

It’s no damning by faint praise to call Young and Old a nice, pretty long-player, as it’s just that. These 10 tracks aren’t going to start a revolution on any stereos, but they’re unlikely to be jettisoned anytime soon, either. Written in three months and recorded in three weeks, it’s a collection that feels fresh and clean, uncomplicated by over-thinking. It’s the sunny pop any listener caught in winter’s grip needs to have on their MP3 player: it’ll be over before you know it, and the songs might not stick, but at its close you’ll feel a whole lot warmer deep down.

Tennis - not the best name for a group, actually probably one of the worst names ever. The music is wonderful - some very strong tracks to start with, but do stay with it as its all great. Cape Cory, the previous album was good and could be bought at a good price. Both of my Tennis albums have cardboard sleeves which is always a bonus to me - how sad am I.

HASH(0xa1877864) out of 5 stars Unexpectedly amazing! 16 May 2012
By S. Cook - Published on Amazon.com

Let me start by saying I've never listened to anything by Tennis prior to buying this album. Never even heard of them, to be honest. Every month, I dredge my way through the 100 albums for $5 Amazon lists every month, trying out different artists like clothes to find something I like. This album is one I'm glad to have found in the list!

The singer & instrumentals blend together some truly hypnotizing songs, all different but cohesive as an album. Some personal stand outs include Origins, Travelling, Petition, Take Me to Heaven, and Deep in the Woods. That's not to say the rest are filler (spoiler: they're not). The lyrics for many of the songs, while they could easily be fluff and I wouldn't complain (which goes to show how amazing the singer & band is), are compelling and thought provoking.

This album makes me want to drive to the beach in a convertible on a lone highway at dusk. Or rather, this album makes me think of things that make me happy... or something. All I know is, this is the best $5 I've spent in some time, and I will be following this band from here on out.

On the fence? Just buy it. I'll make no guarantees, but I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy the ride.

HASH(0x9eccf06c) out of 5 stars Tennis Doesn't Drop the Ball 20 Mar. 2012
By Henry Mackaman - Published on Amazon.com
After Cape Dory, I hadn't a clue where Tennis would go next- they could have easily wrote another beach pop album. The music market today is flooded with "beach bands", but everyone knows Brian Wilson did it best, so why bother anymore? However, Tennis resisted the urge go down the well trodden path to the shoreline, but they saved their beach sounds while heading in a new direction. Young & Old is a collection of thoughtful pop tunes, and the production is brilliant (bravo Patrick Carney). The vocals are warm and endearing, and although the guitar takes the backseat in the mix, it fits in nicely behind lead vox. Tennis delivered a smash here- can't wait to see their live set! Why are you still reading this? Go buy this album and then grab a lawn-chair and a Tom Collins (you know the rest).

HASH(0x9f06f2f4) out of 5 stars One of the Year's Best 11 Dec. 2012

One of the best albums I've bought this year. Musical tastes are subjective. Personally, I really loved this album. It's cool, laid back and catchy as hell. The bonus tracks are actually a couple of my favorites. I would also recommend La Sera if you like Tennis.
