A Very She & Him Christmas was one of the albums that T suggested to me for this project, and I’m glad he did. I love Zooey Deschanel, and the whole album gives off a relaxed, adorable, and slightly funky vibe, like this New Girl lover would expect.
Musically, it has a sort of lazy, acoustic style, and it’s super easy to listen to, whether you’re driving or at work or anything in between. Not gonna lie though, it’s hard not to picture Jessica Day accompanying herself on the ukulele and maybe doing a crazy dance.
There are several familiar songs interspersed with unknown ones, but my favorite track is the reversed-gender-roles rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” where Zooey is the slightly creepy girlfriend trying to get her innocent male counterpart, guitarist and singer M. Ward, to stay the night.
This is definitely an album that will be sticking around in my Christmas music library in the future.
