CMC Sounds: A Very She & Him Christmas

Posted on 07. Nov, 2011 by in Music

My friend Melissa called me out today saying, “It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!”.

But if you’re like me: looking for gift ideas, despise holiday shopping in person and working on an early gift list; then early November (…or rather, MOvember) is just in time to start research.

Enter the newest offerings from musical duo She & Him and their holiday album A Very She & Him Christmas.

A Very She & Him Christmas - She & Him

Zooey Deschanel (She) and M. Ward (Him) present all the Christmas standards on this 12 track album and do a fine job.

The album isn’t fussy, it focuses on simple vocals. I imagine this album playing dimly as friends arrive for Christmas lunch and presents.

I think my favorite of all the tracks is Christmas Wish which is the only track that features M. Ward’s vocals rather than Zooey’s.

A Very She & Him Christmas Track List:
The Christmas Waltz
Christmas Day
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Christmas Wish
Sleigh Ride 7 Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Silver Bells
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Blue Christmas
Little Saint Nick – (it’s not officially Christmas for me until I hear the Beach Boys version)
The Christmas Song

A portion of the album’s sales will support literary organization 826 National – a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization. Plus fans who order the deluxe version of A Very She & Him Christmas on CD or red vinyl LP in the Merge store have the option of ordering the album with a knitted She & Him holiday hat and/or mittens while supplies last.
