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
) 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.
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
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Iâ€™ll Be Home for Christmas
Sleigh Ride 7 Rockinâ€™ Around the Christmas Tree
Baby Itâ€™s Cold Outside
Little Saint Nick - (it's not officially Christmas for me until I hear the Beach Boys version)
The Christmas Song
A portion of the albumâ€™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.
