We’re not sure why Merge are releasing She and Him’sA Very She and Him Christmas before the leaves have changed color, but any excuse to listen to new songs from M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel is fine by us.
“The Christmas Waltz” might seem a little unseasonal now but it’ll be perfect for the record player come December, and even now you can appreciate Deschanel’s sweet lounge-singer croon and Ward’s deft guitar playing. You might even be able to close your eyes and see snowflakes. Give it a listen and save it in your mental catalogue for the holidays.
