TENNIS / Cape Dory [2011]

The husband/wife group Tennis is like one big time-warp.  With a band name and album cover that wouldn't be out of place in the '80's and their 2011 debut record Cape Dory capturing the innocent sound of the late '50's girl group pop.
As dreamy and catchy as the music is, the album start to wear thin by the half-way mark.  The production is muddy (I'm not sure if it's done on purpose for era authenticity) and there isn't a whole lot of emotion put into the songwriting or performance.  It's cute but not enough to warrant a high recommendation.
