“Palomino” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    Barsuk just put out a new LP by husband and wife duo Mates of State titled Mountaintops, which is another set of upbeat indie-pop. If you’re wondering what Matt & Kim might sound like when they’re older and wiser and starting to run out of energy, this might offer some clues. “Palomino” is the kind of song this band has become adept at producing over a career that stretches back for almost 15 years now, with the dueling male/female vocals helping to give the track its shape amid the on-stage fauna. Letterman looks a little disturbed by the karate kicking at the end, before he quickly slips back into the comatose auto-pilot mode he’s been functioning in for as long as anyone can remember.
