Anders & KendallWild Chorus (Nine Mile)
Longtime pals Anders Parker (ex-Varnaline, current solo auteur and Jay Farrar associate) and Kendall Meade (leader of indie act Mascott) have entwined voices on nearly every project the former has done, but Wild Chorus constitutes the first full-on confab. The volume stays low mostly, but modesty works to the album's advantage in that folk-pop confections "We're On Fire, Babe," "Can You Forgive Me," and "City of Greats" benefit from the living-room atmosphere. Even relative rockers "Gettin' Ready" and "Dreamers On the Ground" sound homey, with emphasis firmly on the pair's larnyx interaction. Keeping it low-key suits the tunes, which layer on melody. Wild Chorus fits as warm and comfortable as your favorite sweater. (9pm, Brass House)
