    She & Him. She being Zooey Deschanel and Him being M. Ward. These two are a music match made in heaven. Their third album is wonderfully charming and seems to have that perfect retro sound, reminiscent of summer days gone by. I'm sure it'll be getting a lot of spins over the next few months. My ears never seem to tire of Zooey's alluring voice.       You can listen to She & Him here, … [Read more...]
