Editorial Review

The defining characteristic of local band Tennis System's live show is volume. As in, there is a lot of it. A whole lot of it. On record, it's easier to hide behind a wall of noise, but that wouldn't make for a good album-listening experience. Thankfully ,the Tennis System has eased up a bit on its debut record; the guitar chaos that defines its live show is still there, but it never overwhelms the proceedings. The result is some fine shoegazey rock with that's equally melodic and droney. The CD release show is Monday at Asylum, but there's also a show Sunday at Galaxy Hut.
