Milo Miles reviews the newest album from songwriting team Tennis, Ritual in Repeat:
Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley are clearly passionate fans of the rock ‘n’ soul sounds of the early-‘60s girl groups and Brill Building songwriters and producers. However, their new album Ritual in Repeat is a triumph not because it conveys their fandom, but because it makes a sprightly pop style from 50 years ago fresh, ready for new fans now. This is a much trickier task than it might seem.

i want a book where the narrator speaks in beautiful language but then the characters talk like super informally like “as ignatius attempted to reclaim his breath, he let out a straggled noise allowing his struggle to be heard, thus inciting maria to speak. ‘yo wheezy, shut the fuck up,’ her silky voice broke the tension.”
ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie.
This is even more awesome when you think about how ridiculously hardcore Theodore Roosevelt was.
Seriously. This man was shot in the chest before he was about to make a speech… So he went ahead and made the speech anyway.
This is not a man whining about how willful his daughter is. This is a man bragging and daring you to fucking start something with her so he can laugh at you while she kicks your ass.
