    Volume Three

    With fourteen songs-11 Deschanel originals and three covers-
    Volume 3 is an effortlessly effervescent, bleached-out-in-the-sun pop
    record. The album features some of the most dynamic, complex
    songs Deschanel has ever written, allowing for tempo shifts, disco
    grooves, string arrangements on multiple tracks, and horn flourishes
    that perfectly suit the She & Him sound. Produced by M. Ward and
    recorded in Los Angeles, Portland, and New York City, Volume 3
    features guest contributions from NRBQ's Joey Spampinato, Mike
    Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder from Rilo Kiley, and Tom
    Hagerman from Devotchka.


    Since the release of the band's album Volume Two in 2010, much
    has happened to both She and to Him. Deschanel, whose television
    show New Girl has cemented her status as a sitcom star, continued
    to hone her songwriting skills, writing the theme song for her new
    show in addition to being nominated for a GRAMMY for Best
    Original Song for the movie Winnie the Pooh. She wrote songs for
    Volume 3 during small pockets of downtime while filming New Girl,
    as Ward toured the world behind his latest solo creation, A
    Wasteland Companion, which was released to massive critical acclaim
    last year. Together and separately, the duo has sold over a million
    albums domestically-a testament to their classic sonic
    arrangements, their rich, incomparable voices, and their ability to
    craft pitch-perfect, Brill Building-esque choruses around timeless,
    universal themes

    Transistor Radio

    M. Ward describes Transistor Radio as a collection of songs "about childhood memories of a utopian radio power..." and dedicates the album to "the last of the remaining independent radio stations." Opening with a beautiful John Fahey-esque instrumental rendition of the Beach Boys' "You Still Believe in Me," Transistor Radio continues down a dusty well-worn road full of timeless, uniquely American stories. Ward's distinctly weathered voice and intricate guitar playing are helped along with an impressive group of guests incuding Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), Howe Gelb (Giant Sand) and Jordan Hudson (The Thermals).

    Hold Time

    Hold Time is an eloquent and startlingly beautiful album. While past critics have compared him to everyone from John Fahey to Tom Waits to his old friend Howe Gelb, with Hold Time it's clear that M. Ward, with his brilliant guitar playing and innate sense of melody, is one of those rare and special talents who defy comparisons and compartmentalization. Over the past few years, Ward has found an ever-increasing and dedicated audience; his last three albums, Transfiguration of Vincent, Transistor Radio and Post-War, have struck a singular chord among music fans. His deft guitar picking, bar room piano, and voice like drizzled honey make him a huge favorite of music critics and the focus of public praise from such disparate talents as Norah Jones and Oasis' Noel Gallagher, the former taking him on a global tour as her sole support act. In 2008, he was also part of the duo known as She & Him, a project he began with Zooey Deschanel. The duo's debut album, Volume One, was produced by M. Ward and has enjoyed international success. Like a true American treasure, M. Ward cuts his own groove while music fans continue to fall under his whispered spell.

Its songs unravel their world-wearied tales of life, love, and human kindness with an innate and special grace, helped in part by the very talented friends who join him on this record, such as Neko Case and Mike Mogis, as well as old Monsters Of Folk touring buddy Jim James (My Morning Jacket).

    Love And Circumstance

    2010's Love And Circumstance is the fourth solo full-length from singer/songwriter/musician Carrie Rodriguez. The 12-song collection was produced by Lee Townsend (Bill Frisell) and recorded with Hans Holzen (guitar), Kyle Kegerreis (bass) and Eric Platz (drums). Other artists appearing here also include none other than Bill Frisell (guitar), Greg Leisz (pedal steel/slide guitars), Aoife ODonovan (background vocals) and Buddy Miller (background vocals).

Ward, Merle Haggard & Bonnie Owens, Hank Williams, Lucinda Williams, and more. She even pays homage to her family heritage with the soulful Spanish ballad La Puñalada Trapera, popularized in the 1950s by her great-aunt, famed Mexican bolero balladeer Eva Garza.

    More Rain

    M. Ward has released a string of acclaimed solo albums over the past
    several years, along with five LPs with Zooey Deschanel as She & Him
    and a 2009 collaborative album with My Morning Jacket's Jim James
    and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis under the moniker
    Monsters of Folk. In addition to his celebrated work as a musician,
    Ward is an accomplished producer, handling those duties for such
    luminaries as Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, and Carlos Forster as well as
    his own musical projects.


    More Rain, Ward's eighth solo affair, finds the artist picking up the
    tempo and volume a bit from his previous release, 2012's A Wasteland
    Companion. Where that record introspectively looked in from the
    outside, More Rain finds Ward on the inside, gazing out. Begun four
    years ago and imagined initially as a DIY doo-wop album that would
    feature Ward experimenting with layering his own voice, it soon
    branched out in different directions, a move that he credits largely to
    his collaborators here who include R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Neko Case,
    k.d. lang, The Secret Sisters, and Joey Spampinato of NRBQ. The
    result is a collection of upbeat, sonically ambitious yet canonically
    familiar songs that both propel Ward's reach and satisfy longtime fans.

    Phylactery Factory

    Whereas 2006's Wind-Up Canary was short stories and little Salinger vignettes, Phylactery Factory is filled with dreams, memories, warnings, and reminders. Twenty-two year old Casey Dienel's voice is more hidden; crouching amid swish, drone, and the wildflower jazz of her friends. There are echoes of Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, John Cage, Alice Coltrane, and M. Ward. There are songs from private and uncertain places, vulnerable places. Phylactery Factory falls between freeze and frozen, between green and grey, just as the hinterland becomes white and we feel our first, happy shivers.

    Burning Off Impurities

    Portland's Grails return with their first studio album since 2004's Redlight. An increased interest in psychedelic, ambient, and world music is most likely to blame for the group's exploration of the lesser-traveled paths of modern music. In addition, their eclectic range of collaborative endeavors - guitarist Zak Riles is also in M. Ward's band, while drummer Emil Amos has moonlighted as Jandek's drummer - has introduced an element of improvisation and reinterpretation of ideas that's both brilliant and earnest.

    Messenger

    After playing over 200 shows, including runs with Steve Earle, M. Ward and Josh Ritter, Pug took to the studio to record his sophomore release. While the Nation of Heat EP may have earned him the title of talent to watch, with Messenger, Pug explores new territory, sneaking pedal steel guitar into The Sharpest Crown and backing The Door is Always Open with a powerhouse rhythm section. He does not, however, let his solo charm escape the album. Songs like Bury Me Far (From My Uniform) and Unsophisticated Heart make it obvious that Pug is still master of the guy-and-the-guitar song.

    The Coincidentalist

    The Arizona desert has been a predominant theme
    and source of inspiration for Howe Gelb, indie rock
    pioneer and founder of the band Giant Sand. Since
    1985, Gelb, based in Tucson, AZ has brought the spirit of the southwest and high art to his DIY recordings.


    Gelb's newest recording, The Coincidentalist, is his first album for his new label, New West Records. Recorded with M. Ward and Steve Shelley (of Sonic Youth), Gelb brings together a set of songs that seem linked, like a novel but effortless stand on their own. The record also features guest contributions from Bonnie Prince Billy and KT Tunstall.

    Classics

    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward (tka She & Him) have shared information for their latest album, Classics. The 13-track collection of "carefully-selected, timeless standards" is duo's first album for the major label; their previous four albums, most recently last year's Volume 3, came out via Merge Records.


    As previously reported, the pair recorded the covers album live alongside a 20-piece orchestra, "allowing a spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest forms." As Deschanel explained, "It was a dream of ours to record these songs in a way that highlighted the brilliance of the songwriting and the beauty of their melodies."

    Volume Two

    She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008's Volume One has evolved into a bonafide touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.


    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy and romantic. All songs (except 4 and 7) written by Zooey Deschanel. Produced by M. Ward.

    For Emma, Forever Ago

    Pronounced "bohn eevair; French for "good winter" and spelled wrong deliberately. This debut is centered around a particular aesthetic; Justin Vernon, the primary force behind Bon Iver, moved to a remote cabin in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin at the onset of winter, alone for three months. This solitary time fed a bold, uninhibited new musical focus. All his personal trouble, lack of perspective, heartache, longing, love, loss, and guilt that had been stockpiled over the past six years was suddenly purged into song. The NY Times called this record "irresistible", and it was given a "Recommeded" rating by Pitchfork. RIYL: Iron & Wine, M. Ward, and Elliott Smith.

    The Living & The Dead

    The Living and the Dead, Jolie Holland's new album, is quite simply a breakthrough, the album her adoring fans have been waiting for. With a vocal style hailed by the Village Voice as sultry and sweet, despairing and lonely, Jolie has experimented in the past with various settings for her unique, jazzâ€inflected voice; this time, working with collaborators like M. Ward and Marc Ribot, Ms. Holland has embraced both the rocking side of her roots and the compositional possibilities of the recording studio, multiâ€tracking her voice extensively for the first time. The results have intensified the evocative moodiness that has always existed in Holland's music, but also brought out a rollicking looseness that serves her tales of love and loss perfectly. An artist who transcends genres and demographics, Jolie Holland offers us an invite into her own warm, welcoming world.

    Incorruptible Heart

    Produced by OK Go frontman Damian Kulash Jr. and mixed by longtime Flaming Lips collaborator Dave Fridman.


    Incorruptible Heart transforms Becky Stark's songs in the key of cosmic love into their most four-demensional realizations yet. Over two years in the making, Incorruptible Heart's diamond-light shines through its every facet from strings by the Calder Quartet to horn arrangements by longtime Brian Wilson compatriot Probyn Gregory to magical cover art by Lavender Diamond drummer (and graphic novelist) Ron Rege Jr.


    Turning from soaring electro-pop ("Light My Way") to distantly showtuney eruptions ("Perfect Love,") featuring M. Ward on guitar to simple strums, Incorruptible Heart is an extension of a life lived in a beautiful universe, and an album that could only be made by the freest of thinkers. Incorruptible Heart is Lavender Diamond's first release since 2007's Imagine Our Love, and is the first full-length original release on OK Go's record label, Paracadute.

    Volume One

    She & Him is a story of musical serendipity: two artists, each renowned in their own creative fields, meet and recognize a certain shared nostalgia. The result is destined to be one of the musical highlights of the year.


    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward first met to record a version of Richard and Linda Thompson's When I Get To The Border for a movie soundtrack. Immediately struck by one another's talents and finding an instant rapport Zooey let slip that she wrote her own songs which she recorded alone at home on her computer. Somewhat shy about anyone hearing these musical morsels she eventually sent the demos to Ward who was instantly impressed. They soon reconvened at his Portland studio to begin work.


    Embracing the warm sound of early analog recordings, Volume One is more than just a showcase for Zooey's rich and endearing voice; it's a distinctive and endlessly charming album. The songs themselves give a respectful nod to the likes of Dusty Springfield, Linda Ronstadt and The Zombies while Ward's production gives them just the right amount of golden era sheen. Whether Zooey's channeling Ronnie Spector as on I Was Made For You or joining Ward in turning The Beatles I Should Have Known Better into a seductive hula guitar duet, the results are always captivating.

    Christmas Party

    Christmas Party is the new holiday album from She & Him, the duo comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Christmas Party is the follow up to their wildly popular A Very She And Him Christmas, and this new collection features guest appearances by Jenny Lewis, The Chapin Sisters and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley.


    Christmas Party is replete with holiday favorites - including classics like Darlene Love and Phil Spector's Marshmallow World, Bing Crosby's Mele Kalikimaka and Chuck Berry's Run Run Rudolph. But, Ward and Deschanel also may introduce listeners to the more obscure tracks such as folk-singer Vashti Bunyon's Coldest Night of the Year and the lesser know Sinatra track Christmas Memories. Pop favorites such as Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You and The Chipmunks Christmas Don't Be Late round out the celebration. Throughout the album is She & Him's signature stripped down take on production.


    It was the positive experience they had recording their first Christmas record, A Very She & Him Christmas, in 2011 that brought M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel back for another round of holiday cheer. Much like their first Christmas record, She & Him bring an organic and minimalistic approach to their holiday covers. Highly produced classics get stripped down to their most fundamental elements, a style perfectly aligned with their vision. You won't find any accompanying orchestra or full-piece brass bands on Christmas Party. Instead, She & Him rely on friends and family to lend a simple and authentic holiday vibe to this album, one where the guest list speaks for itself.


    In the years between the two holiday records, She & Him released Vol. 3, an album of original songs, and kept their affection for covers alive with Classics, a compilation of covers of their favorite standards. Throughout these intervening years and albums, Zooey and Ward gradually culled a new collection of holiday songs to re-interpret, tucking them away like a stack of presents growing under a tree. As Christmas Party comes to a close, the listener can take solace in knowing the door on this gathering is never fully shut. The sing-alongs, the happy accidents, the quiet moments with loved ones - they're all waiting for you whenever you wish to immerse yourself in the splendor of the season. As Ward himself says, Music is one of the purest ways into Christmas.

    The Westerner

    John Doe's The Westerner will be released via Cool Rock Records/Thirty Tigers. Throughout his career, Doe has garnered worldwide acclaim: NPR Music describes his work as "one of the warmest, most welcome voices in pop music. There's a beseeching quality to his singing that draws you in with curiosity," while American Songwriter praises, " a winning platter of '60s inspired rock with a singer-songwriter twist." Doe calls The Westerner his "psychedelic soul record from the Arizona desert."


    The album features ten new tracks from Doe with guest appearances from Chan Marshall of Cat Power, Debbie Harry of Blondie, Cindy Wasserman of Dead Rock West and Tom Brosseau. The Westerner was produced by Howe Gelb (Neko Case, M. Ward), Dave Way(Fiona Apple) and Doe. The album's artwork was designed by Shepard Fairey and Aaron Huey to support Native American rights via a campaign called Protect The Sacred, with additional photography by Jim Herrington.

    Soul Sick

    There are artists who can command attention. They lean into their songs with an irresistible edge and total emotional connection and stay there. Sallie Ford is one of those artists. On her upcoming new album Soul Sick, out via Vanguard Records, Ford creates music that draws on all of her influences but still comes out her own. From the album's opening line "I woke up feeling sour on the sweetest summer day," the 11 tracks on the album chronicle Ford's journey through anxiety, insecurity, and depression.


    "This is a 'confessional' album. It's about struggling with my issues - some that I've overcome and some that I still carry around. I felt confused, down about life and unsure of myself," states Ford. "On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place. All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal."


    That healing is captured throughout the music played on the album. With Mike Coykendall (M. Ward and She & Him) at the helm, it's laced with nostalgic feeling and produced to enhance that essence. "I asked Mike to produce, Ford says. "He loves old rock & roll and always records on tape, but he's also an experimenter, exploring new things with his music.


    Soul Sick finds Ford further mining, updating and perfecting her vintage influences to stand alongside her uncompromising and confessional lyricism. On her first themed album, her doo-wop harmonies, slippery British invasion keyboards, and crunchy, fuzzed-out guitars back Ford's distinctive howl and surround her at-once intimate and confrontational musings on love, depression, and fear.
