I thought I saw you lookin' my way, so I thought I'd give you a try

I've been listening to an album, Volume One, by She & Him for the past few days. It's a collaboration of actress Zooey Deschanel and singer/songwriter (is there a worse tag for a musician than "singer/songwriter"?) M. Ward. Think of very catchy pop songs of love and heartbreak from the 60s or 70s, and you'll have a grasp of what's going on here. The album cover is fairly indicative of the music contained therein. At this writing, tou can listen to the whole thing over on myspXXX, and the album's official release date is in a couple days, on the 18th, on Merge Records. Check it out.

No way! That was so 60s sounding. I'd never have known this was modern. And it was quite good! I didn't expect much. Zooey Deschanel annoys the hell out of me even though she's cute (yadda yadda yadda) cos of the way she plays up her Betty Boop quirkiness. But she can sing!
