Unabashed Joy!

4 out of 5 stars

On the one hand I have a 2,500 word essay on Trust Law…on the other I could sit and listen to "Team Boo" by Mates of State…no surprises which one ive picked

I just wanted to share this band with the world…especially at this time when uni can suck more than a vaccuum with exams/revision/essay/prospect of unemployment looming…you need some happiness…and Mates of State are here to deliver

This is happy music, Mates of State compromise of a drummer and organist…that's all (hmm bit White Stripes-ish) and its a man and woman duo (thats very white Stripe-ish) and they are married (enough with the similarities already). But that's where the similarities end..Mates of State create of joyful, chirpy pop sound that'll have the most hardent of Interpol fan cracking a smile…for at least 3 seconds.
This is music to chill out to…but it never becomes too weak a sound that it will send you to sleep with drumming woven with the Blackpool Pier-esque organ, and the male female vocals perfectly matched to each other.

When i say it's unabashed joy…it really is…the music seems childlike simple but underneath is some crazy free flowing song structures.
If you need to perked up ladies and gentlemen…i strongly urge you to check out Team Boo by the Mates of State…or anything of theirs for that matter…and it'll give you that warm feeling you haven't had since you last peed your pants…
Just try not being chuffed listening to this!
