Ok, ok, I’m having a serious ‘OMFG WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD THIS BAND BEFORE?’ moment!
She & Him cosists of none other than the amazingly wonderful and talented one-man band/singing-songwriting genius Matt Ward and a girl who he recorded a duet with in 2006 named Zooey Deschanel!
(Wetting your pants in anticipation for the MP3 I’m gonna post yet, M. Ward fans?)
(I bet you are.)
This duet led to the two discussing collaborating further, and Deschanel admitting to have had a whole bunch of home recording stuff hidden away in the deepest darkest recesses of her home. Alas, no longer wanting her talents to be a secret, she got them out, posted them away to the lovely Matt Ward and these recordings became the basis for their first record between the two entitled “Volume One”.
The good part…
