She & Him

The musical partnership between Zooey Deschanel and musician M. Ward, known together as She & Him, has resulted in a new recording of Christmas music. A Very She & Him Christmas builds on the group's two earlier recordings combining Deschanel's delicate vocals with Ward's simple, complimentary production style. Producer Ward also sings, plays guitar and organ, while Deschanel contributes piano and ukulele work along with her singing. It's a very pretty, low-key recording that works as an antidote to much of the hectic and overdone music one hears at this time of year. Particularly charming is the group's fun cover of the Beach Boys' Little Saint Nick. The indie/folky sound will appeal to a wide audience and provide a musical repite when the holidays get hectic.
