She & Him, referring to Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward released Volume 3 back in May and I still can’t stop listening to it. The duo have been writing, recording and producing their own material roughly since 2007 and it just keeps getting better!
In 2011 Deschanel divorced her ex-husband, Ben Gibbard the vocalist of The Postal Service and Death Cab For Cutie, and I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to hear songs that have nothing to do with those issues. To be honest, the third album by She & Him focuses on a new path, getting over the grudge and moving on.
If you need that kind of wake up call definitely check out some of the tracks on their new album. I’ll leave you with their first single, which I quote Deschanel “The process was so much fun and gave me a chance to give a nod to some of my favorite ’60s musicals.” See if you can spot them yourself, enjoy!
