The Mile High City isn't the first place you look for sweetly fuzzed beach pop. But with a handful of vinyl- and cassette-only tracks last year, Denver's Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley proved to be masterfully quick students of the genre. Though titled after the husband-and-wife duo's well-traveled sailboat, their debut cruises along due to its swaying girl-group songcraft, with Moore as the elegantly serenading siren. Cape Dory establishes an enviable fantasy: two lovers happily adrift. Where Best Coast is too cool for school, Tennis seem (almost) too good to be true.
