A Dine-In Valentines Day Mix by Anders & Kendall
February 13, 2013
Nothing says I love you quite like a delicious meal, particularly if it’s of the home-cooked variety. And since many of you will be spending your Valentine’s Day eve in meal-prep mode, we are covering the entertainment. Or rather, Anders Parker and Kendall Meade, aka Anders & Kendall (andersandkendall.com), are. The talented avant-folk duos’ distinctive voices—his appealingly bristly, hers graceful and honeyed—have a knack for dexterously meandering in, out, and around each other in some kind of sonic figure-eight. All of which can be appreciated on the pair’s soon-to-be-released debut, Wild Chorus (Nine Mile Records, available February 19th), a collection of eleven thoughtful songs with replay appeal a plenty, it dips from sweeping sweet melodies to breezy Southern-flecked grooves that owe in part, perhaps, to the Knoxville recording studio after which the album is named. Here (click the link below to open in Spotify), the longtime friends and collaborators share their picks for the ideal Valentine’s Day dinner mix. The rest of the wooing is up to you.
