She and Him: BeatCrave FavBy Winnie Jaing
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are both relatively popular on their own, but when you put these two masterminds together, they form a wonderful little duo called She & Him. Their first album, Volume 1, was created shortly after a collaboration between Deschanel and Ward led to further discussions of Deschanel’s homemade demos. On a whim, Deschanel sent the demos to Ward, and the idea of an album was born. Initially, the duo communicated via e-mail, as Deschanel was in Los Angeles, and Ward was in Portland, but that changed after instrumentals were made on Ward’s part and Deschanel’s vocals were needed. She flew to Oregon and the album was completed in three sessions.
She & Him’s new album, Volume 2, is slated for a 2010 release. When asked about the upcoming album, Ward mentioned that it would be “twice as good as Volume 1.” Guess we’ll have to wait for it to find out! Check out She & Him below, and if you like their sound as much as we do, vote for them in Friday’s poll!
