Watch She & Him Play Conan

On last night's episode of Conan, the twee trad-pop megastars She & Him served as musical guests, bringing a supporting cast that looked nothing like the one they brought to The Tonight Show last week. This time around they had a full standing-up string section rather than the choreographed backing singers of their last… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I'm not entirely sure this week's pick for best video even qualifies as a music video; it certainly stretches the definition.

She & Him – “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” Video

For certain segments of the population, including some of us who may be reluctant to admit such things, an adorable Zooey Deschanel dance routine is pretty much audio-visual crack cocaine. And that group of people (which, let's be honest, probably encompasses Stereogum's entire readership, as well as its staff) should enjoy the living hell out… More »

She & Him – “Never Wanted Your Love”

As I understand it, The New Girl's ratings have sagged somewhat in its second season, and the decision to renew it for a third was no sure thing, but where ABC failed its viewership so miserably -- and appears to be doing so again, in even more spectacular fashion -- Fox did the… More »
