Volume One is the first studio release from the duo of Zooey Deschanel and M (Matthew) Ward.  The album is a collection of retro-country and melancholy pop songs written and composed by Zooey with M. Ward providing the top notch production and music.  Zooey has a remarkable voice and is a very talented songwriter whilst M. Ward is a multi-instrumental whiz.  The music has an old school country flavor that is sorely missed in Nashville.   I really enjoy 70's pop music feel as well (Zooey's voice is reminiscent of Karen Carpenter at times along with the lush production on some of the songs.  Two cover songs are included as well (Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got A Hold on Me" and The Beatles' "I Should Have Known Better").  My favorite track is "Why Do You Let ME Stay Here?" (check out the video).

She & Him are a real pop music gem.  They're a talented duo and I wish they had more exposure.  If you enjoy retro-country, 70's pop music then I suggest you check out this album.
