Tennis "Deep In The Woods" Video


(via Rolling Stone)

Single Available on iTunes Today

Try not to dwell on the fact that the trash bag being dragged across a floor in the opening image of Tennis' new video seems to be leaking blood. The band's sweet girl-group sound only enhances the creepy David Lynch-ian feel of the video for "Deep in the Woods," a bonus track from the band's new single, which is available today on Forest Family Records. (The Denver group's next album, featuring production help from the Black Keys' Patrick Carney, comes out in February on Fat Possum.) Singer Alaina Moore explains that "Deep in the Woods" is based on Shirley Jackson's novel "We Have Always Lived in a Castle." "It is the story of two sisters, devoted to each other to an extent that borders on mania," she says.


Yuck Art Book


Fat Possum has collected Daniel Blumberg of Yuck's drawings made during the writing and recording of their debut album into a 44 page hardcover bound book.  Each Yuck release so far has featured one of Blumberg's drawings.  The book will include all of these and many others that have not yet graced the cover of a 7" or LP.
