It’s October. Why are we reviewing Christmas albums in October? Why She & Him? Why?

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, a perfect pop couple if there ever were one, are back for a second helping of doo-wop and pop.
Highly anticipated here at Webcuts HQ is the forthcoming album from the actress lady who married that whiney guy from Death Cab for Cutie, and the talented tunesmith, M. Ward, also known as She & Him. “In The Sun” is as pop perfect as they get folks, a bright, upbeat number, a little piano swing and a sweet helping of some Zooey Deschanel sass and Matt Ward soul, tied in a neat little three minute bow. The video clip itself is a school scene cross between “Grease” and Britney Spears “Baby One More Time” without the red leather catsuit (swap it for librarian chic), but with dance moves and fun galore. Taken from their forthcoming album Volume 2 “In The Sun” is released digitally by the kind people at Domino Records on March 29 and on 7″ single replete with a cover of the Beach Boys “I Can Hear Music” on the flipside for Record Store Day on April 17. I don’t know about you, but I could watch Zooey Deschanel wink at me aaaaaall day long.
As Conor Oberst once proclaimed, “M. Ward for President”. As far-fetched as it sounds, Oberst may have a point.
