Tennis - Origins

I thought Tennis's debut album, "Cape Dory," was all right, but nothing special. This song, however, eclipses everything from that first LP--just in its first minute! For me, it's that bass, the doubled/backing vocals, the stately piano shuffle, that little break midway through that puts the spotlight on Alaina's vocals. There's a high quotient of fine drama in this song. If this is Patrick Carney's effect or just the band maturing, I don't know, but it's great.
