Inide-rock marrieds Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel - the Mates of State - have quite the fetching covers album out, digital only, called Crushes. Girls, Death Cab for Cutie, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Waits and Belle and Sebastian get the by turns glitchy, poppy, and lyrical treatment. More info about the album here. Gardner and Hammel play the First Unitarian Church tonight, with Todd Barry and Suckers. Nick Lowe's "Love Letters" is below.
