Quarters for the Jukebox


Album — Re-arrange Us by Mates of State

Mates of State
Mates of State are a married indie-pop duo, originally haling from Lawrence, Kan. The new album contains some gems (see below) that offer honest, lyrical storytelling glued together with interesting, cinematic musical arrangements. The songs are mostly uplifting with strong choruses and bridges, even if they don’t sound like it at first. Their music connects. If you’re an indie-pop fan, I highly recommend. Check for yourself.

Quarters for the songs: Blue and Gold Print; Great Dane; Lullaby Haze; The Re-arranger; You are Free; Get Better.

Worth listening, if you like: Matt Pond PA; The Weepies; Belle and Sebastian; Tina Dico; The Shins; Death Cab for Cutie; Palomar; Goldfrapp (kind of).
