Baby it’s cold outside…. So here is your album of the week!
Sssssoo freezzzing. I had to scrape ice off my front and back windshields… The closest I will get to a White Christmas in San Francisco though. Once I got myself inside, and my blood back to a normal temperature, I was in the mood for one of my favorite holiday albums of this century: A Very She & Him Christmas.
This album takes some of the most popular Holiday songs and gives them the indie treatment. Blues guitars and vintage sounds to really make these covers stand out. I enjoy Zooey’s voice and think she puts an interesting spin on many of my favorites. By far, the best track on this album is Baby it’s cold outside where they swap roles and do an amazingly enjoyable duet.
I loved M. Ward’s album this year and the collaboration between him and Zooey Deschanel is always amazing. Yeah I know, completely pathetic indie pop fan here. Yesterday they released a very cute ANIMATED video for their rendition of Baby it’s Cold Outside and I thought I would share. Enjoy with hot cocoa!
