Two pieces of music for you today. First one was sent to me by my good buddy Nathan, and I must have listened to it about eight times this afternoon. It’s by super-duo She & Him (aka wide-eyed actress Zooey Deschanel and indie-folk singer-songwriter M Ward) and is really rather lovely. Hope you like it even half as much as I do.
Secondly we have the rather less impressive – yet equally enjoyable in an entirely different way – Shine by Final Placement. You may well have happened across this one already, as it’s been a bit of an internet sensation, but it seems appropriate to have a musical counterpoint to the joyous first track, and this brilliantly tuneless racket has to be heard to be believed. The guitar solo in particular is a thing of wonder.
