Zooey DeschanelÂ only keeps on getting cooler. Â She was great as the sister in Almost Famous, the romantic interest in Elf and the batshit-crazy ex-girlfriend in Weeds. Â I am sure that she is the reason that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” became so popular a couple years ago after she sang it in Elf. Â She was supposed to be in a Janis Joplin biopic (even though it has been “indefinitely postponed”). Â I used to think it was her in Fox’s Bones, but Kevin corrected me and pointed out that it was her sister, Emily.
Â Â Â Her newest Â venture is in music with indie rocker M. Ward as She & Him. Â They are mellow tunes, but you can’t deny that she has a great voice. Â Great cover of a Miracles/Smokey Robinson song You Really got a Hold on Me. Â Another good one is Sentimental Heart. Â But I am not a talker; you can find a good review of their album onÂ Stereogum.
Â Â Â The album doesn’t come out till March 18, but if Stereogum is reviewing it, you can probably find the whole cd floating around the internet. Â Take a listen to some over atÂ Hype Machine.
