Japanese duo Tenniscoats have been running together for more than ten years, and their music is all about catching the moment. They are true improvisers inside their own musical world. The music on this record adds a new facet to their universe -- deeper, more intense, but with still-visible signs of their trademark playfulness, despite the fact that the album was recorded during dark winter-time. This is the second time they went to Stockholm, Sweden, to record their music. Musicians around the group Tape and label Häpna gathered together with producer Johan Berthling during a week in the studio to record most of the music for Papa's Ear. Compared to the recording of Tan-Tan Therapy (2007) which was very haphazard, everything started on a new level. There was already a plan on how to work, ideas around the sound that was aimed for. In typical Tenniscoats fashion, Saya completed some of the lyrics in the last minute. There is always a new song to record, the flow of new material seems inexhaustible. Welcome to Tenniscoats' magical, mystery world. Participating on the album are Saya, Ueno, Johan Berthling, Tomas Hallonsten, Fredrik Ljungkvist, Lars Skoglund, Andreas Söderström and Andreas Werliin.
