So You're Listening To... She & Him

When I die, I want to be reincarnated as Zooey Deschanel’s bangs. There, I said it. I’m one of the many disciples that think she has the cutest style and is super funny and kind of wish she was part of my Thursday night karaoke girls' nights. M. Ward is a pretty great musician as well (if you haven’t, please check out his solo stuff). Together, they make magic. Part deconstructed acoustic retro, part country twang and slightly bluesy- they really do have a unique sound.

I was very taken with the first album. The only time I’d ever heard Zooey sing it was always loungey stuff and I was expecting a throwback record. I was not expecting a a steel guitar, wilty Grand Ol’ Opry vocals and hint of 60's girl group. I was pleasantly surprised. As I sat down to get my ideas together, I switched my Spotify station over to She & Him, thinking I’d just listen to a couple refresher songs... two hours of listening later... It became very clear that this would be my next feature. My Spotify page still hasn’t left the She & Him station.
