She & Him – “Thieves” Video

She & Him's "Thieves" has a vintage, Roy Orbison feel to it. Same goes for the video, directed by Norwood Cheek. Cheek specializes in doing Super 8 videos, and encourages spontaneity and resourcefulness with his Flicker Film Festival (an all Super 8 and 8mm film festival). That spirit guides the "Thieves" video and it… More »

Tired Pony (Gary Lightbody, Peter Buck) – “Point Me At Islands” (Feat. Zooey Deschanel)

Quite an assemblage of fancy names for this new project from Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, called Tired Pony, with members including R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Belle & Sebastian's Richard Colburn, along with an extensive cameo list (M. Ward, Tom Smith from Editors, Zooey Deschanel from your dreams). The crew holed up for a week of… More »

Iggy Pop and Toumani Diabate were the highlights of the first night (along with ATP staples Built To Spill, Broadcast, Liars, and Shonen Knife).

Coachella 2010: Jay-Z, LCD, Disco Balls & Chandeliers

Four years into my Coachella career and I've never experienced an Indio spring so mild. It's a gift from the gods meaning Brooklynites like Scott and I can wear jeans all weekend, a blessing with the residual benefit of ensuring nobody in Indio is forced to see our unsightly Brooklynite legs (you are welcome, California).

She & Him Bring “Thieves” To Kimmel

Knowing that Zooey doesn't exactly thrive while singing live on television, you could go either of two ways as her manager: Keep her off camera (unless it's for a cutesy video), or line up the televised appearances in rapid succession so that if one doesn't go so well its memory can be blotted… More »

She & Him Bring “In The Sun” To Letterman

Here's the thing about actors in music projects: Whatever the sounds are like, on camera they're going to be alright. At least, on camera under controlled conditions, like in the video for "In The Sun" which saw Zooey Deschanel dancing and winking and being the human manifestation of indie adorability. It's a slightly different… More »

She & Him/The Living Sisters @ El Rey Theater, Los Angeles 3/25/10

She & Him shows are pretty much layovers between festival appearances (up soon: Coachella, Sasquatch, and Bonnaroo) but right now they've got smaller, sold-out appearances on both coasts. Last night it was L.A.'s El Rey Theater. Photographer Andrew Youssef said M. Ward "hung out in the shadows," but of course the Zooey groupies did… More »

She & Him – “In The Sun” Video

Here's your G-rated Zooey fantasy sequence for the day. Z dances cutely, takes one step closer to Feist: The aww-shucks charm factor is high in the Peyton Reed-directed video for "In The Sun," as is the "1234" factor (nice hula hoop sequence), just another step toward Ms. Gibbard's dominance of the Triple A(dorable) indie… More »

She & Him – “Thieves” (Stereogum Premiere)

During a recent BBC session promoting their forthcoming Volume Two, Zooey & Matt delivered an acoustic-and-vocal rendition of "Thieves," a lovesick, AM-radio throwback tapping the same vein marked up by their dusty, disarming debut. Deschanel's earnest vocals crib from the school of playful twang and patient melodic arcs idealized by Nashville greats like… More »

She & Him – “Thieves” (Live On BBC)

So far the squeakuel to She & Him's first Volume has offered only "In The Sun." The studio sounds are still safely tucked away in a Merge vault somewhere, but promotional consideration inspired folk-buddies Zooey & Matt to perform some of its bits for a BBC broadcast, which we went 1 hour and 40… More »
