Though she put out an album with Anders Parker earlier this year, it's been a while since we heard from Kendall Meade in solo Mascott mode. That changed this week with the release of a new EP, Cost/Amount which was produced by Jennifer O'Connor and is out via Kiam Records. The four cuts feature three very catchy originals in her typical sparkling guitar pop style, plus a lovely cover of Kirsty MacColl's "They Don't Know About Us" (made famous by Tracy Ullman). You can watch the video for the EP's title track and stream another song from it below.
Mascott plays a record release show for the EP on Sunday (9/22) at Mercury Lounge which is her first NYC show in two years. Her band features O'Connor and man-about-town Doug Gillard. Joey Sweeney & the Long Hair Arkestra are opening and tickets are on sale.
Meade and O'Connor will be playing a few East Coast shows together, most of which are "living room" shows. More details and tickets for those are here.
All dates are listed, along with video and song streams, below.
