The Drunken Pressman

A Very She & Him Christmas

I knew Zooey Deschanel had some pipes, but had never head them used outside of her quirky tv characters until now. This album presents a light, fun take on some great Christmas classics, and that is all, but what more can you ask for from Christmas music? It’s nothing new, the pace of each song is surprisingly the same, Deschanel’s vocals and M. Ward’s guitars seem perfectly adequate, but never really experimental. It’s a good album for satisfying mom, grandma, and the young niece who idolizes Zooey, but for die-hard music fans, it might just bore.
