Last week She & Him released a delightfully perky music video for the duo’s single, “In The Sun.” This week, they topped that with a free stream of their yet to be released sophomore album, “Volume Two.”
The disc hits iTunes and store shelves a week from tomorrow, March 23rd. Personally, this date has been marked on my calendar and committed to memory for what seems like an eternity. Because of this, I was thrilled to find that NPR posted an exclusive first listen of the entire album this morning.
I’m going to save my review of “Volume Two” for next week, so keep an eye out for it. The iTunes version of the album comes with a bonus track, “I Knew It Would Happen This Way,” and I feel that writing a review without it would be incomplete.
I will say this though: some early reviews I’ve seen have been complaining that there’s too much She (Zooey Deschanel) and not enough Him (M. Ward). Zooey did write all of the tracks for the album, and it might be a little She heavy this time, but I’m loving it so far. Also, if you choose to only listen to one track, let it be “Ridin’ In My Car.”
Ok, seriously, that’s all I’m going to say for now.
Check back next week and enjoy the free stream until Tuesday!
