Mates of State
Matt & Kim
Separated by just a few hours and a few hundred yards, yesterday's Bumbershoot lawn programming included a double feature of couples making music on keyboards and drums. In one corner: Barsuk darlings Mates of State. Across the fountain, closing out the "TuneIn" stage: Matt & Kim. In one group, the husband/boyfriend plays drums, in another the husband/boyfriend is on keys! One band sounds like they're singing love letters to each other over retro electro-organ; the other seems like they should be immediately casted for an inspirational children's show that adults would watch non-ironically.
