Put This on Your iPod: She & Him Volume 1

[Sarabeth here with a new feature that, quite frankly, I’m stoked about. Each week I’ll be bringing you an album that I feel is particularly awesome in the hopes of building iTunes libraries everywhere! It could be something new, old, hugely popular or fairly unknown, so keep checking back for our suggestions to awesome-ify your music collection.]

The non-stop Elf marathons last week made me realize just how much I love Zooey Deschanel movies. She’s just so…cute! She also happens to be multi-talented. Yup, some of you might not know that she’s also a very gifted singer and musician.  So in honor of her, I bring you: She & Him’s Volume 1. It’s a peppy album with a retro feel that makes me fall even harder for dear Zooey. As if that’s even possible.

About the Band:

She & Him, formed in 2006, consists of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Ward met Deschanel, and while he knew she had a good singing voice from seeing Elf, he was surprised to know that she had a catalog of songs she’d written and didn’t know what to do with. According to Deschanel, once she met Ward, everything just fell into place.

Top 3 Tracks:

I Was Made For You

Why You Should Listen to It:

This is definitely something to listen to when you’re in the mood for something retro/light hearted/indie. Zooey’s voice is very unique, beautiful and soothing. And the album is just really fun. It’s the perfect music for a girl’s night in, a library study sesh, or a mid-winter pick-me-up. I just love it!
