Is this a sign i should be in a band? A band called Tennis?!

The name of the band is Tennis and the guitar player looks like my twin brother. WTF?
Not sure if this is a sign from God or just a coincidence. Either way i may start to actually try to learn how to play guitar now. My uncle got me into the kinks and all kinds of good music from the 60's, along with all my cool Minneapolis friends that are all in bands. I've also been going to concerts the last 10 years, so clearly I've had plenty of influence. The problem has just been the motivation when i pick that guitar up. I guess this could be my new years resolution. I'll keep y'all posted.

Regardless this band is awesome and reminds me of beach house and best coast. Their brief story about sailing and how that met in school is pretty fascinating in the interview. Go buy this record as it's set to be one of the best in 2011. Tennis will release their debut album Cape Dory on January 18 through Fat Possum Records. Currently touring in Europe they'll be back in the US soon to tour for a few months leading up to SXSW! Can't wait to see them there!

A new life in New Orleans

My Paradise

Hello fellow music fans. I took once again another summer/fall off. I enjoyed unemployment, hanging out with bands, and spending one last summer in Minnesota with friends/family. I now live 30 minutes north of New Orleans right on lake ponchartrain in a suburban city called Slidell. It's a 90,000+ family town with some cool restaurants. I work at Cross Gates Family Fitness and I run the junior tennis program there. People down here in the south have been a lot more down to earth than anyone I've every been around in my life. Except for maybe a few cool folks i know. From my roommate, people I work with, my boss, couchsurfers, random people I've met, everyone has been very welcoming and genuine.

I still go to concerts mostly in New Orleans and some of the upcoming shows I'm really looking forward to in the next month are Mumford and Sons, Frightened Rabbit, Portugal the Man, Built to Spill, and maybe a few more. I recently saw the Love Language from Raleigh North Carolina in a really cool place called the circle bar near downtown New Orleans.

Watch this video!

Stay Hip! Listen to indie music! Respect your neighbors! Cheers! -Brody
