Mates of State / String Quartet Tribute - R.E.M.

Before I get to this weekends String Quartet Tribute, I'd like to remind everyone to pick up the new Mates of State CD if you haven't yet. It's easily one of the best out this year so far. I'm seeing them tomorrow in Urbana, so expect a review and pictures from that soon. Here's two sample tracks from my earlier post on the album.

MP3 Fraud in the 80's
MP3 Punchlines

Also, make sure to visit Indie Interviews and download his conversation with Kori about the new album.

The String Quartet Album that I chose for today is R.E.M. If you're a fan of the band (who isn't?) and have a soft side for strings make sure to check out the album. While your listening read this post from Jesus about his love for Michael Stipe.

MP3 Nightswimming
MP3 Losing My Religion

Buy it.

Hey! I'll be at the Urbana show tomorrow, too!
Is there a Tribute to the White Stripes? Seven Nation Army with violins would be stellar.
