Band Episode: Mates of State

I remember the first time I heard Mates of State. They were one of those bands that I fell for immediately. I could sing (horribly) along with them at the top of my lungs. I could put their songs on mixtapes for friends, family and crushes. They are like the ultimate mixtape band, they manage to find a way to appear on the all of my greatest mixtape masterpieces. Mates of State have given thousands of people (including me) a chance to tell someone via mixtape: “I like you crazy” or “It’s not the same without you and I” or “What are your weaknesses? I won’t pass you by.”

Despite the lyrics I just mentioned, Mates of State are more than just sweet pop songs, in fact their performances have more fight and energy than a mosh pit at a Mastodan concert. What’s even cooler, is that Kori and Jason are some of the kindest, most down to earth people we’ve met since starting The Window Seat.

To buy their records and see their show dates go HERE. We can’t think of a better gift to give/receive this holiday season than a Mates of State LP. Especially the new record Mountaintops, it’s ace.

Dance Card: Weekend “Coma Summer”

Very excited that Weekend’s debut Record is out this month. You can buy it online, listen to it on Spotify or be legit and buy the LP from Slumberland Records.

This noise rock trio reminds me of early Jesus and Mary Chain, Psychocandy mixed with My Bloody Valentine and Joy Division. It’s somehow romantic but completely bleak, kind of like the month of November. Like that Sunday in November when you were bored and walked to the Science Building to dance it out and then head home to make apple cider.

This is the fist Dance Card we ever did. Downtown Denver Library, I love you. Sorry I still have Patti Smiths Autobiography checked out. I will return it….eventually. I mean if you let dancing like this happen in your library, how strict are you on paying fines?
