She & Him: Volume One

I may have previously expressed my dislike for those indie bands with a token girl who plays the tambourine and sings a bit. Neither do I much like actresses turned singers (or the reverse, to be fair).

But listening to M. Ward’s recent collaboration with Zooey Deschanel, I can’t help but enjoy myself. Maybe it was because my first encounter with the duo was a live version of “Magic Trick” on KCRW. Another possible explanation: Deschanel sounds a little bit like Jenny Lewis at her least pretentious, a more charismatic Marissa Nadler, or a less troubled Jenny Owen Youngs. And thanks to M. Ward, the instrumentation is perfect.

    i can't wait till they become seasoned musicians to see them play again. Their record is quite good. They did a nice cover of "Baby Its Cold Outside" that was really sweet.

    I def wanna hear their Volume Two. Volume One is a total harmony. I kinda feel like sitting in a bench on my front yard during one rainy morning while listening to them. it's nice and enjoyable.
    However, I had never listened to "Magic Trick" before, It's even sweeter. thank you for the link :)
