In The Sun

12:50 PM

 

Despite the smile in the photograph, I am in a sour mood today. I am not exactly sure why, probably not getting enough sleep, class was a little boring last night. Meh. Anyways, I actually wore this yesterday. I just got these socks from Target last month, very useful for this weather. I am also hoping to have something awesome to post this weekend (yay!) actually, a few awesome things now that I am thinking about it....anywho. Ready for today's music themed post? I am :)


Today I would like to discuss one of my new favorite bands, She&Him. This amazing indie duo is made up of the lovely Zooey Deschanel, and the amazing M. (Matt) Ward. There is currently a lot of buzz going around on the 'net about this band right now, but there are a few people that I know who do not know who She&Him are so I will keep this brief.


She&Him released their debut album "Vol.1" in March of 2008, with Deschanel featured on vocals, Ward mostly on guitar production. (Although, he is vocally heard in a few songs). Vol.1's track list consists of a variety of several wonderful songs, ranging from folk to 60's girl-group.

What I am excited about is on March 23rd Vol.2 will be released!!! I am so excited!!! I think Kyle will be glad to hear something new from them at least, he is not their biggest fan, he however loves their cover of "I'll put a spell on you", which was featured on Starbucks "Sweetheart 2009" compilation last year.  I love Zooey but I am hoping to hear a little more from "Him" this album as well. :)
