Mates of State, 'Re-Arrange Us' (Barsuk)

8
Re-Arrange Us
Critical Mass
Label: Barsuk

by Spencer Kornhaber

These proud parents ditched their old-timey organ, and with it much of the band's hyper-active, carnivalesque vibe. About time, too: Adorned with piano and synth, the ten songs on Re-Arrange Us are fuller, more elegant vessels for the duo's warm, intricate melodies. They've found a way to stay joyous while singing about married neuroses and thirty-something regret: Don't be shocked if the album's thesis -- "Love loud / Don't lose loud" -- shows up in hipster wedding vows.
