Tennis Covers Brenda Lee's "Is It True"

2011-06-29
 
Tennis is back at it with a cover of Brenda Lee's "Is It True."  Just head to their website to snag a listen of it.  Click here to go to their website
 
Alaina Moore explains why they chose the cover... "Brenda Lee has been a great source of inspiration for me. We stumbled across the song 'Is It True', a less popular single she recorded later in her career and loved it not just for her more mature, crackly voice, but for the randomly awesome inclusion of a very young Jimmy Page on electric guitar. The song is such a jam, we really enjoyed the chance to record it ourselves. Despite the limitations of recording it on a 4-track cassette, and then  having to mix it in a pinch on an 11 year old lap top, that crashed regularly, all the parts we love are there."

Lost Sounds 'Blac Static' Release July 19

2011-06-11

PRE-ORDER LOST SOUNDS 'BLAC STATIC'

(via Pitchfork)

the late punk Jay Reatard was best known as a solo artist, but he'd also been part of an absurd number of bands.  Those bands did a whole lot of recording, and the records they left behind are ready for rediscovery.  Last month, Goner released a Best New Music'd re-issue of 'Teenage Hate,' an album from Reatard's old band Reatards.  And now, Fat Possum is planning to release a cd/vinyl best-of retrospective from Lost Sounds, a frantic, synth-damaged punk band that featured Reatard and Alicja Trout (also of River City Tanlines).  That releaes, Blac Static, arrives July 19.

Blac Static features songs culled from three of Lost Sounds' four albums, as well as an unreleased demo of "I Sit I Watch I Wait."  It was compiled by Trout and drummer Rich Crook.  Below, we've got the tracklist..

Blac Static:

01 1620 Echles St
02 I'm Not A Machine
03 Black Coats / Whitefear
04 It's My Dream
