If She & Him didn’t exist would there be any reason to invent them? A collaboration between actress Zooey Deschanel and indie makeweight M. Ward, they produce the sound of bits of ‘50s and ‘60s pop music filtered through a blanding machine until it has lost any semblance of interest. Deschanel has an extremely annoying singing tic where she rolls her ‘r’s presumably in an attempt to sound like Dolly Parton but instead sounds like she is taking the piss.

Occasionally they stumble across something not-bad; ‘I Could Have Been Your Girl’ is pure Dolly Parton with a cracking chorus which survives in spite of the cloying, safe instrumentation and a real bad dose of that ‘r’ thing. ‘Turn to White’ is a nice track that has something of the early Zombies ballads. There’s lots of semi-pleasant moments like this  about it but heres the rub - I really don’t think she can sing. Okay, she can sing but the voice has nothing about it, it’s just tremendously bland and uninspiring throughout. The songs here and there aren’t terrible, like they’ve studied the Goffin-King back catalogue and taken bits and bats of inspiration.

They cover Blondie’s ‘Sunday Girl’. Why? why? why? why? why? why? why? why? why? I mean, seriously...why?! Oh, I shouldn’t get uptight, it’s all probably well intentioned and just a bit of old fashioned fun. It will sit nicely in with people who like cupcakes and mass-produced ‘vintage’ things.
