Long known for her seductively haunting voice, singer/songwriter Meiko makes her first exploration of the songs of others on her new full-length album, Playing Favorites, out May 25, 2019 on Chesky Records. The album, which label co-founder, David Chesky, assures "may be our best sounding vocal album ever recorded," features songs made immortal by luminaries including The Cranberries, Otis Redding, Erykah Badu, Duran Duran, Blind Melon, and even Rick James (among many others), Meiko leaves her own indelible mark on songs that will have you hearing them as if it were the first time.

"I've always wanted to record these songs, and thought it would be cool to make a record of all of them in one go. I chose these tracks because I've loved them for years," Meiko says. "Some of these songs have gotten me through some hard times. Quintessential songs that are always playing in my head...or (in my) car."

Part of the Chesky Binaural+ Series, all recorded with a single binaural microphone in a decommissioned church in Brooklyn, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. These new albums capture even more spatial realism for the listener, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure music ever recorded.

"It was really interesting recording the way we did because...I was able to hear all the nuances. Every breath and foot tap. It was a very intimate setup that caught every little thing which makes the listener feel like they're right there and I'm singing to them," Meiko says.

I love Meiko with all my heart. This is a great album and the pressing is wonderful. It would be sweet for Acoustic Sounds to get ahold of her first album and give it the 45rpm 200g treatment.
