If one album could make you want to ask Santa for a record player this season, it would be Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's 'A Very She & Him' Christmas. If one album could make you want to ask Santa for a record player this season, it would be Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's 'A Very She & Him Christmas.' We have to admit, we bought their 'Volume 2' album on vinyl before we even owned a record player. Of course, if you want to buy the CD, that's fine too. Even better, they're offering a pom pom hat and mitten combination pack on their website.
You just get us, She & Him. You really do.
We received a download link for the album, available October 24th, on Friday and instantly we knew this was a change-the-next-three-months-of-your-life kind of album. We spent the entire weekend getting into the Christmas spirit, that's right, we're completely bypassing Halloween this year and skipping straight to the holidays.
Of course, if you're already a She & Him fan, we don't have to sell you on this album. It's classic She & Him, particularly with the duo's take on 'The Christmas Waltz,' 'Christmas Day,' 'Silver Bells' and 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree' and 'The Christmas Song,' (wait, is that almost the whole album?). Anyway, we also really loved how Zooey took the male part on 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' and... oh, who are we kidding, we loved the whole thing. We're already brainstorming how we can get a Christmas tree in Los Angeles in October so we can start decorating it with handmade hipster-y ornaments we make out of pipe cleaner and popcorn while the record spins at our feet and our computer screensaver is set to one of those fake crackling fires.
If you want to download the album and be filled with Christmas cheer, you can do so on iTunes starting today. Last we checked, it had already cracked the Top 10 along with Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto' and Kelly Clarkson's 'Stronger.'
