I got the She & Him Christmas Album about two weeks ago. It’s rich and creamy and sounds like an old dusty vinyl record. I tend to cringe a little when I hear a musician is putting out a Christmas album, as it seems to me that this is a sign of someone who has run out of ideas, but these two seem perfect for Christmas music, whether they have or not. (And I hope they haven’t.)
This has been Zooey Deschanel’s year. Suddenly everyone is listening to her music and watching her on tv and commenting on what she wears, and can you blame everyone? She’s a darling. Aside from her music itself, which is like hot cocoa for the ears or something anyway, she’s one of those people who can wear unique and slightly quirky clothes without coming off as attention grabbing. She’s cute, she stands out, but she isn’t a clown about it.
