Happy Fat Tuesday! Yup, in case you live somewhere that doesn’t really celebrate Carnival season, be aware, it is Mardi Gras time! To be honest, it would be easy to miss the holiday in San Francisco where folks seem more interested in prepping for St. Patrick’s Day than feasting on fatty foods and drink. Nonetheless, Kasey and I are fans of Fat Tuesday, so even if you also are living in a city that doesn’t have a great Mardi Gras celebration, we wouldn’t want you to feel left out. So what have we got for ya? Well, Wired Magazine asked Kasey and I to take over their podcast for Fat Tuesday, and of course we said “YES!” So you can download the podcast for free from their iTunes page or stream/download it below. On it, you’ll hear a lot of great Mardi Gras and New Orleans inspired music paired with the Cajun-inspired recipes that Kasey is featuring in the Kitchen. Yup, the music on the playlist is primarily based around New Orleans and Louisiana-based musicians including today’s Single Serving, one of New Orleans best up and coming new indie bands, Generationals. This NOLA-based band formed in 2008 by ex-Eames Era guitarists/songwriters Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer. Their sophomore album, Actor-Caster, is scheduled for release this March 19. As a teaser, the band released the whimsical “Greenleaf” as the album’s first single. The track features bright, loose keys, a lethargic bassline and a fun, playful melody. I can’t wait to hear some more!
