Indie-folk pair Penny & Sparrow, aka singer/songwriters Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke, have a new album on the way later this summer. It's called Finch, and it's out Aug. 2 via Thirty Tigers. The duo stopped by the Paste Studio to play the first single from that album, "Eloise," as well as "A Kind of Hunger" from 2017's Wendigo and a beautiful cover of John Denver's "Annie's Song." Please excuse us while we gently weep into a cup of coffee. It sounds like Baxter and Jahnke were born to play "Annie's Song." With just two voices and a single acoustic guitar, their version is warm, mellow, and stripped-down, but it's just as emotionally affective as the original. "Let me drown in your laughter / let me die in your arms" is still as lovely and heartbreaking a request you'll ever hear in a song. Is anyone else suddenly feeling up for a nice "walk in the rain?"
