December 8: She & Him

She & Him - A Very She & Him Christmas

My love of Zooey Deschanel is very well known, and my love of M. Ward is fairly well known, so it shouldn't be a shock that I love this album.
But this album feels different from their first two albums.  Where those were all dressed up in pop dressing, this is a pretty stripped-down affair.  Sure, there are songs with a lot going on, but, for the most part, this album finds Zooey singing lead while Ward plays guitar, a little piano, and sings a little background.  It's a warm, bluesy, intimate Christmas album.  And I adore it.

"The Christmas Waltz"

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

"Blue Christmas"
