Papaya - Tennis
Not that the experience is comparable with that of torture. If it were, I wouldn't be reviewing it here and nor would I, at the end of the album, be eagerly seeking to listen to it again. I've since found out that Mric, who kindly keeps me up to date with what his fabulous Kythibong label are up to, actually plays in this band, which only serves to make me even more excited about what this excellent label might have for us next.
You can hear 'Grapes' from the album in my May show on Dandelion Radio. It can't really be said to be represenative of the rest of Tennis because it's got vocals on it, but then as this is an album that delights through its ability to deliver the unexpected, it's probably as good a place to start as any,
Get it and other Kythibong releases here. If you've not done so already, I'd strongly recommend you check out that Healthy Boy album and much of the rest of their back catalogue while you're at it.
