John Meeks, the jewel in San Diego’s alt-country crown, serves up something a little different this month. Following 2010’s amazing Old Blood, Meeks joined forces with local coffeehouse chanteuse Joanie Mendenhall for an EP of duets that would do Loretta & Conway proud. Mendenhall’s delicate tone is a perfect foil for Meeks’ stripped-down arrangements and plaintive vocals.
