"About Kendall Meade from Paste"

Kendall Jane Meade sounds charmingly vulnerable, and writes like she’s dotting her verse with unusually romantic British vernacular—once again confirming her gift for executing the three-minute pop song. (Meade) builds her imminently accessible folk-pop tracks upon a foundation of languid, melancholy-dipped ruminations, then fades out on the ether of a few earthbound rockers - Matt Fink for Paste Magazine

"About Anders Parker from"

(Parker) has a talent for writing smart but compelling hooks, and his guitar work splits the difference between melodic warmth and aggressive crunch with skill and intelligence. - Mark Deming at


Wild Chorus (2013)



Anders & Kendall is a new collaboration between Anders Parker (Varnaline, New Multitudes, s/t) and Kendall Meade (Mascott, Sparklehorse, Helium).

These two prolific songwriters have been lending their talents to each others records for over a decade. Finally, in 2011, both found themselves with a break from other projects.
"We set up a couple weeks to write songs together," says Parker, "and within a couple days it was clear we had more than an album's worth of great songs."

"Putting together a record of duets has long been a fantasy of ours," adds Meade. "Our influences are very similar, yet we each bring something unique to the songs. It adds a certain thrill that you don't find when you are working by yourself."

Of course, this record is not just Anders & Kendall. To flesh out these new songs, Parker and Meade turned to some of their trusted colleagues, including Doug Gillard of Guided By Voices, Will Johnson of Centro-Matic, and Scott Minor of Sparklehorse and Beth Orton.

The result is "Wild Chorus," a lush, playful collection of rustic indie-pop that brings to mind other classic duet records by Richard & Linda Thompson or Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips.
