She & Him Volume Two On Vinyl LP + MP3
Dream Team of Vocalist Zooey Deschanel and Folk-Rock Maverick M. Ward Create More Heavenly Magic on Sophomore Set of Throwback Pop and Melodic Rock
She & Him make soft music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008’s Volume One has evolved into a bonafide touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford. Hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy and romantic. All songs (except 4 and 7) are written by Zooey Deschanel. Produced by M. Ward.
