She & Him

February 27, 2008 3:37 pm Published by

Zooey Deschanel only keeps on getting cooler.  She was great as the sister in Almost Famous, the romantic interest in Elf and the batshit-crazy ex-girlfriend in Weeds.  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.  She was supposed to be in a Janis Joplin biopic (even though it has been “indefinitely postponed”).  I used to think it was her in Fox’s Bones, but Kevin corrected me and pointed out that it was her sister, Emily.

   Her newest  venture is in music with indie rocker M. Ward as She & Him.  They are mellow tunes, but you can’t deny that she has a great voice.  Great cover of a Miracles/Smokey Robinson song You Really got a Hold on Me.  Another good one is Sentimental Heart.  But I am not a talker; you can find a good review of their album on Stereogum.

   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.  Take a listen to some over at Hype Machine.
