Bumbershoot

Husband-and-wife indie pop duo Mates of State stopped by the Toyota Soundwave tent at Bumbershoot in Seattle to play us a few songs. One of those songs was a new track called "Now We're Gonna Get It" which we caught on video with the help of director Paul Greenhouse. Watch that performance below.

The segment, which includes our funny hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones, was part of a three-hour live BrooklynVegan show dedicated to Barsuk Records. John Roderick of the Long Winters, Ramona Falls, David Bazan, and Say Hi also all stopped by to perform or talk to us (Ra Ra Riot didn't show up). Audio from the whole day is coming soon. Meanwhile check out pictures of all of them along with the Mates of State video, below...

Corporate sponsorship is embarrassing and unnecessary.

It would be nice if you cut these reviews down just a titch, like where you identify all the different buttons on the front. "Here's the on/off, here's the play button," etc. I think it's enough to just say "There are the kind of buttons you'd expect from a cassette player" and then move on.
