She & Him Prep Xmas Album


Good for what ails the
grouchy Grinch in ya.


By Fred Mills


Around here we worship the Grinch more than Santa Claus,
which is why we have a standing policy of not covering holiday albums,
publishing holiday guides, hosting a holiday party for the contributors, etc.
Christmas records in particular get on our nerves; we have a Rat Pack Xmas CD,
the Charlie Brown Xmas CD, and a collection of traditional choir recordings and
that’s really all we need to get us through the season (we used to have a
Chipmunks record too, but the children grew up and went off to college).


However, after perusing Pitchfork this morning, our interest
was piqued: apparently Zooey Deschanel tweeted yesterday that she and M. Ward –
aka She & Him – are planning to release a Christas album. Advised
Deschanel: “Exciting news! @sheandhim will be releasing
our first holiday record later this year! Been working on it a while! I’m super
pumped about it!”


So maybe we’ll let our hearts grow a few extra sizes this
coming Christmas and make room for the She & Him record. If anybody can
melt the ice on us, those two can…
