I Woke Up Like This: Mates of State – “Proofs”

Some more residual tunes from when I was listening to records last week that changed my listening habits quite drastically. I saw Mates of State open for The Anniversary and Superdrag (The Mars Volta was also supposed to play). Along for the ride was my college radio show co-host and we made sure to find My Solo Project in “the stacks” (shelves of CDs) during our next broadcast. Eager to show I was more profound than just some hardcore kid (I wasn’t), I latched onto Mates of State and found similar music and/or paid more attention to my co-host’s suggestions since we both enjoyed Mates of State’s performance. The duo ended up being one of the cornerstones to my last serious relationship, which also means I had to take a break from Mates of State for a while after that ended. ANYWAY, still fond memories regarding this band and I appreciate that it led me to a much wider taste in music.
