“Tenniscoats really aren’t like anything else, they’re a cool drink of water on a hot summer’s day.  They’re simple, note perfect, never too much. They’re sensational, over and over.  I can’t believe how many records they’ve made and how they all sound so good.  Saya’s beautiful voice and instinctive way with melody and Ueno’s incredible guitar playing.  We met them a long time ago when they were playing with Maher Shalal Hash Baz and became friends and made a record together.  But they still surprise me, stun me even with what they find and how they deliver it.  They’re so fascinating, it’s a forever.”
