wow guys, this is an exciting first for the blog!! you all know i am a GREAT music lover and mix maker, so i’m THRILLED to be hosting an exclusive pre-release stream of Classics, the new album by She & Him! featuring 13 cover songs of greats like Unchained Melody, She, Time After Time, Stars Fell On Alabama – the list goes on and on. it is a wonderful album, one that i will certainly have on repeat this coming Christmas.
In honour of the full-bodied sound of the original classics, She & Him recorded the album live, including full brass, strings, piano, bass, guitar, drums and flute on their rendition of Springfield’s classic melody. Ward’s guitar shimmers and flows beside Deschanel’s whole-hearted and warm vibrato, weaving a hearty live version that allows for the spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest form.
just click on the big orange play button up top and you’re good to go! if you’re having trouble listening to the Soundcloud stream you can also listen over at NPR.
