I’m lucky to have some really fabulous “in the know” friends. It’s even more lucky for you because once they turn me on to what’s out there I can pass that along to you lovely people. This one I stole from that beautiful Jude Adam via her Facebook page, thank you very much.
She and Him are a duo formed by Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. This comes from their site:
The She & Him story begins when in 2006 , renowned one man band M. Ward, recorded a duet with a girl named Zooey Deschanel. A delightful recording session, the experience lead to a dialogue between the two about collaborating further. This, in turn, led to Deschanel admitting to secretly making dozens and dozens of home demos and hoarding them like acorns for the winter. Sick and tired of being stingy and secretive about music, Deschanel realized that if songs were acorns then this was indeed her wintertime: she sent the recordings to Ward and these demos became the basis for their first record, entitled Volume One.
They are awesome, they are. Plus that, honestly, I love the video. It’s just whacked out enough to keep me watching and I like that in a video.
