Zooey Deschanel, hitherto the quirky character actor with a nice sideline in sardonic quippery, has long tantalized audiences with her vocal talents in movies such as"Elf," "Winter Passing," and "The Assassination of Jesse James." But the pianist and ukelele player has finally cut a whole album with M. Ward under the moniker of "She & Him." I've listened to a promo of the album, titled "Volume I," and it's terrific. Here's a delightful cut from the record, out mid March. And there's more at Zooey's MySpace page.
