She and Him

I’m not usually a fan of actresses’ crossing over and making vanity albums. But, after listening to She and Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward) cover of The Miracles “You Really Got a Hold on Me” I was blown away. She has an incredible voice! She's not really trying to sound like anyone but herself. Her voice isn't velvety soft, but, her smokey and sultry.

The two first met in 2006 working on a movie soundtrack together. Apparently the two really hit it off and started recording together. Their album Volume One comes out via Merge Records on March 18.

Below are some selections from a recent stop the two made by KCRU's Open Road.
