If you've missed practicing your dips and spins since Lloyd's Roller Rink closed its doors, Tendavillage is where you can go to recapture that laidback, 1970s rollercade feeling. Their songs effortlessly groove, bop and weave through genres that include neo-soul, funk, jazz and R'n'B. The musicianship is top notch and the result is a savvy-but-soulful, street-meets-studio sound. Throwing open the doors to the Tendavillage rollercade is producer/writer Kate Melvina, the holder of the key(board)s, and she's brought along her favourite influences: Stevie Wonder, Prince and D'Angelo. Melvina's sense of fun carries over into her lyrics that immortalize pop culture references to Adam Driver and Ralph Wiggum. Lace up, pull up your socks, unhand the railing and let the groovy music remind your feet how to boogie.
