At Least I Know You Tried

Mates of State - Re-Arrange UsMates of State has their fifth album out on May 20 called Re-Arrange Us.

Fans will notice that the 10-song set drifts away from the organ-heavy arrangements of the band's past in favor of piano, a decision that vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jason Hammel describes as making the group nervous, but a needed change.
Hmm, sounds cool, but I'll definitely miss the organ. The two of them are great live so catch them if you can:
