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 right thing:… More »

She & Him – “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Video

Zooey Deschanel came in at No. 7 on the list of Your Top 20 Indie Rock Crushes Of 2012, probably the most hotly debated of any Gummy Awards category this year. And based on the comments I read, Deschanel was the most divisive figure on that list. I guess I can see why: She’s got… More »

22 New Indie Rock Christmas MP3s For 2011

Don’t you love Christmas music? I’m Jewish so mostly it makes me feel like I’m in a mall. But don’t you love malls? I’ve been trying to get my daughter to listen to The Nutcracker, and that’s been pretty easy because she’s only three and doesn’t have a choice. But if Tchaikovsky’s not your speed… More »

She & Him Do “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” on Ellen

The She & Him network TV circuit continues with a performance of “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” on Ellen. Thought it’s a totally tepid rendition that’s almost impossible to comment on because it’s so neutral, I appreciate how devoid of subliminal messaging it is (This morning, I woke up in my bed after a long… More »

She & Him Do “Christmas Waltz” For Leno

Desperate to one-up Das Racist — just kidding, though I would love to work on a She & Him/Das Racist post for Where’s The Beef at some point — She & Him took “The Christmas Waltz” to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night. Watch the performance after the jump. More »

She & Him – “The Christmas Waltz”

She & Him’s yuletide album A Very She & Him Christmas comes out in a couple of weeks (basically at the exact same moment department stores start putting up the tinsel and paper snowflakes).

This was probably inevitable, but She & Him, the forever-cute duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, went and made a Christmas album. It’s called A Very She & Him Christmas, and it’s out 10/25 on Merge.

She & Him – “Oh Boy” (Buddy Holly Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

Buddy Holly died a young man, but left an indelible mark on 20th century songwriting. This summer’s covers compilation Rave On Buddy Holly is the latest tribute to the pop icon, tapping everyone from Paul McCartney and Lou Reed to My Morning Jacket and Modest Mouse to take liberties with Holly’s songbook.

Adorable Alert: She & Him & Pooh

She & Him have a few songs on the soundtrack for the upcoming Winnie The Pooh film. Disney posted this teaser and interview with the band. M. Ward only appears in the background though — Zooey Deschanel probably looks a little more child-friendly. The video also shows the band recording their songs, while residents of… More »

She & Him – “Don’t Look Back” Video

She & Him’s last video, for “Thieves” was shot in Super 8 and was grainy and gritty — or at least grainy and gritty for a She & Him project. The “Don’t Look Back” video returns to the overwhelming cuteness of their “In The Sun” video. There’s a choreographed dance, a glossy set full of… More »

She & Him – “Fools Rush In”

We listened to Dirty Projectors, Shins, and Passion Pit cover songs that inspired them for Levi’s Pioneer Sessions. In this edition, M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel tackle the much tackled Johnny Mercer and Rube Bloom pop standard “Fools Rush In.” Their take won’t supplant Sinatra or Ricky Nelson, but you can sign up at Levi’sMore »
