[A Very She and Him Christmas]

She and Him, the musical pairing of 500 days of Summer actress Zooey Deschanel with American singer/songwriter M. Ward, have outdone themselves with their third album (all of which I own!). Definitely a rock ‘n’ roll Christmas offering, this album is comprised of 12 classic Christmas tracks sung in Zooey’s melancholy tones, accompanied by the most part with the ukulele, which gives these classic Christmas oldies a new twist.

Covering songs such as Elvis’s ‘Blue Christmas’, ‘Baby its cold outside’, to my personal favourite ‘Rocking around the Christmas tree’ the duo have crafted an album which is true to the She & Him sound, acoustically soft and dreamy, with a whimsical edge, yet not overtly sickly, like many in your face Christmas records.

I have to say I have this on repeat at the moment, really getting me in the mood!
