Manic Productions Presents: Mates of State + Alex Bleeker & The Freaks

Mates of State have made a new album called "Mountaintops." You already love Jason and Kori's unmistakable music, or perhaps you've managed to miss out or have simply misunderstood just how great -- and yes, influential -- they and their sound and their songs are. You throw the record on the stereo and the first thing you notice is the energy and force of it: You could use the girl-group bounce of 'Total Serendipity' to help you do some sort of running-and-jumping-up-and-down exercise (that song even comes complete with a couple of cool-down sections). The first response you might have to 'Maracas' is to do the robot dance as the portamento Laser Cats intro kicks in, and that might be the correct response.
