Cruising Music

There has been a ton of buzz about Tennis around the blog world these days, but I hadn't heard them until I came across this video.  Love it!  Would have been the perfect soundtrack for my recent roadtrip (more on that later).

From NPR: "In the dead of winter, it's nice to be taken on a journey, if only in our minds. A new album called Cape Dory does just that. The retro-pop record was written and recorded by the band Tennis, the husband-and-wife team of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, while they journeyed on the Atlantic. After saving up together, the couple bought a 30-foot sailboat and embarked on a yearlong tour of the Eastern Seaboard.  Although the stories of the journey have now materialized as songs, music did not play a significant role during the couple's time spent sailing."
