She & Him | Volume 3 | Merge Records | Robin’s egg Blue /500 (limited mailorder only edition!)
Last day at home before 3 weeks of tour mailbox hotness! The latest offering from Zooey D and M Ward. Blissful, summery pop jams with pristine production by M Ward. Zooey’s doing some interesting things with her deeper vocal tones. Not sure if I’m into yet. But glad to see M Ward is getting some more vocal time. And I’m always a fan of Kate Harmer’s clean, bright, & vintage looking school designs and layouts for She & Him’s records. That inner sleeve is perfection. So’s the lyrics insert with rad photography from Autumn de Wilde.
Also, it’s hard not to think Zooey’s singing at Nick Miller…
Someone please make Schmidt/Max Greenfield make a record.
Sorry for the watermark. Unless you’re a lazy eBay flipper.
Some favorites from yesterday’s show at Targhee Festival in the middle of the gorgeous Teton mountain range.
Click each photo for bigness.
I also took a panorama of the Teton Valley - here.
Tour starts tomorrow. Maybe I’ll see you out there. Dates & details here.
We took an impromptu beach trip to Hug Point on the Oregon Coast today. It’s a solid half mile of coastline riddled with sea caves and tide pools and rocky outcroppings. It was amazing.
