A Very She & Him Christmas

Genre: Holiday; Status: In Season; Music Label: Merge

On A Very She & Him Christmas, professionally adorkable New Girl star Zooey Deschanel reunites with Portland folkie M. Ward, this time wrapped in holly and (mostly) good cheer. While some covers feel dreary — ”Silver Bells” is less tinkly than dirgelike — Deschanel’s unfussy voice puts a charming spin on yuletide chestnuts ”Blue Christmas” and ”Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” And their take on the Beach Boys’ ”Christmas Day,” with its gingerbread-spicy surf licks, is sweet enough to cure an eggnog hangover.
