Mates of State - "Laura" (Girls cover)

Irresistible husband/wife pop duo Mates of State have offered up a free download from their upcoming covers collection, Crushes (The Covers Mixtape). The song is "Laura" from San Francisco's Girls, released on last year's lauded debut Album. Other notable sources include Tom Waits, Daniel Johnston, Nick Cave and Belle and Sebastian. You can check out the whole track list at the duo's web site, but for now dig into this morsel of delectable pop music.

Mates of State


  1. Mates of State ruined Girls' Laura. Take a listen to the original, you'll see.

  2. Definitely heard it. The Girls' Album was one of my top ten of 2009. Taste of course if subjective, but I still think it's pretty great myself.
