Two of my favorite bloggers have extolled the virtues of Tenniscoats' Tan-Tan Therapy, the Japanese duo's new collaborative LP with Swedish outfit Tape. It's sort of unlike anything I've ever heard; Raven Sings the Blues says it recalls "wide-eyed children at play in a room full of instruments," which is the best possible way to describe the wonder and spark in these songs. "Oetsu to Kanki no Nanoriuta" in particular displays how gorgeously Tape's electro-acoustic arrangements frame Tenniscoats' impossibly delicate and fragile pop melodies. Highly recommended winter listening.
