Weekend JammerTennis' Take On Brenda Lee's "Is It True?"Marissa A. Ross

Tennis is one of my favorite current acts; an adorable three-piece comprised of a husband, wife, and some other dude they picked up since I saw them in Austin for South By Southwest. The Denver trio just about gave me a heart attack earlier this year with their first full length I loved it so much. Cape Dory is perfectly pop, nostalgically sweet, and washed clean with oceanic daydreams. Their new single doesn’t stray too far, and once again, I am all aflutter for Alaina Moore. This cover of Brenda Lee’s 1964 jammer, “Is It True?”, is charming and spot-on for summer. I recommend putting it on your playlist and doing the Mashed Potato, pronto.

  2. I really like this band. I added one of their songs to my playlist on Hype Machine. I dunno, I’m not a beach type, but they make me want to build a sand castle and shave above the knee, for once.
