It’s been three years since She & Him have released an original full length album, but they are back with just as much eclectic spark along with some new little musical twists. She & Him consists of actress Zooey Deschanel and musical soloist M. Ward who released their first album together, Volume One, back in 2008. Known for their combination of soft melodic voices, strumming guitar rhythms and catchy doo-wop 1950’s feel lyrics, She & Him has made quite a name for themselves in the few short years they have been together.
The new album includes 14 songs, 11 written by Deschanel and 3 cover songs. Unlike the previous records, I feel that this album experiments a bit more with incorporating more orchestral elements, in addition it also plays with some disco-like sounds from the 70’s. One thing is for sure, this indie-pop duo never disappoints.
Also, free streaming of a whole album? Just another reason to add to the list of why NPR is awesome.
