Fans of the indie darling duo She & Him enjoy the simplicity of Zooey Deschanel’s girlish voice combined with M. Ward’s acoustic guitar.  Fans of Christmas will enjoy “A Very She & Him Christmas” for the same reason – they keep it simple.

Deschanel’s pleasant old-time vocal style lends itself well to this collection of Christmas favorites – from “The Christmas Waltz” to “The Christmas Song.” Aside from upping the tempo (and switching gender roles) in “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” She & Him doesn’t deviate much from the songs’ original versions, which is comforting. I also must give credit where it’s due: the band’s rendition of “Little Saint Nick” is completely tolerable (a rare feat for that song, in my opinion).

Lending two sweet, simple voices to holiday classics, M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel make “A Very She & Him Christmas” a charming addition to any yuletide playlist.
