Watch SNL Parody M.I.A., Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel hosted SNL over the weekend with musical guest Karmin (I won't even get into that) and overall, she did a pretty nice job.

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 »

Watch Florence + The Machine On SNL

Florence & The Machine returned to SNL last night in what turned out to be a pretty decent episode of music-related content. Host Jason Segel sang with the Muppets in the monologue (Statler to Waldorf: "I hope Florence brought a time machine … so we can go back to before we heard that song!"). Later,… More »

Zooey Deschanel Sings The National Anthem

Though she got the gig to promote her Fox sitcom New Girl, hipster queen Zooey Deschanel provided the World Series' fourth game its most pleasant soundbite, which I guess is a pretty easy thing to do when Joe Buck and Tim McCarver are in the booth. Check out Zooey's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" below. More »

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.

Indie Rockers Respond To NY Legalizing Gay Marriage

New York just became the 6th largest state to approve same-sex marriage. Yes! The Senate bill passed 33-to-29, Governor Cuomo signed the measure shortly after, and the law goes into effect in 30 days. A historic night to be sure, one probably best not spent in front of a laptop. Too late. But in case… More »

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.

Download Ben Gibbard & Death Cab For Cutie’s Best Cover Songs

Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with "You Are A Tourist," the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys. A sunny addition to our spring playlist, it recalls brighter moments of mid-period Cure when it's not channeling "Float On." That's fitting given how Ben Gibbard's got five… More »

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.

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 »

Ben Gibbard Covers Radiohead, Describes New DCFC LP

The next Death Cab album is "not a guitar-based record ... we've been into vintage keyboards and playing with that palette." So says Ben Gibbard of DCFC's Narrow Stairs follow-up, expected next Spring, set to feature 12-13 songs. (Hear one of the potential tracks below.)
