Daily Dose Pick: She & Him


When actress Zooey Deschanel teamed up with folk troubadour M. Ward two years ago, people weren’t sure what to think — but two albums later, the duo’s retro pop makes sweet, perfect sense.

Volume Two finds the pair continuing in the same vein as its similarly titled predecessor, blending ’50s and ’60s pop with country lilts and laments. Lead single “In the Sun” mixes downbeat lyrics with upbeat melodies, offsetting its lovelorn heart with music set to inspire synchronized dancing.
