A Very She & Him Christmas

A Very She & Him Christmas by She & Him
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Merge Records
If any indie duo had to tackle Christmas music, it might as well have been She & Him, what with Zooey Deschanel's cutesy charm and M. Ward's seeming willingness to play along with said cutesiness. Still, A Very She & Him Christmas is quite a tame affair. Zooey's alto sounds quite sharp -- it needs to be against Ward's mostly soft acoustic guitar and her occasional uke strums -- but it also comes off incredibly melancholic. It's a little hard to believe she really wants you to "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Nonetheless, this succeeds best when the two duet, like on "Christmas Wish."
