I’m just sitting on the shelf

Still half a world away, my friends…. as it stands now, I should be heading back to the states on Sunday, but nothing is 100% until I’m on the plane! Fortunately, while here, a perfectly timeless and utterly adorable album leaked out, Zooey Dechanel & M. Ward’s collaboration She & Him and their first album Volume One (first album as the title implies, but didn’t we learn anything from the Travel Wilburys??).

I really fell for Zooey’s voice in that cute little Elf movie when she was singing in the shower, M. Ward probably did too. Here voice is lovely, classic, yet completely unique. I’m really glad she teamed up with Ward, rather than have some stupid album producer who cranks crap out in their sleep put together some Lindsey Lohan / Ashley Simpson / Paris Hilton (hey, I’m a celebrity (for dubious reasons, usually), therefore I can be a famous music “artist”). No, here she’s simply the voice and the muse, and THAT I can completely understand. To be honest, I think he was a bit inspired by the wonderful Pipettes too on some of these songs…

As I work to catch up on what’s going on back in the states, Zooey serenades me…. nice. Enjoy!

She And Him – Sentimental Heart
She And Him – Why Do You Let Me Stay Here

Why do you let me stay here
All by myself
why don’t come and play here
I’m just sitting on the shelf…
Why don’t you just sit right down and stay awhile
We like the same things and I like your style
It’s not a secret
Why do you keep it
I’m just sitting on the shelf

She And Him – This Is Not A Test
She And Him – Change Is Hard
She And Him – I Thought I Saw Your Face Today

Go show She & Him all you love here and here now!
