Zooey Deschanel and M.

The album was released on March 18, 2008 on Merge Records. The duo is augmented by session musicians Rachel Blumberg (drums), Mike Mogis (pedal steel guitar, mandolin) and Mike Coykendall (bass, guitar).According to Merge, at that initial studio session the two “were immediately struck by one another’s talents and found an instant rapport. During a conversation about their shared love of old records, Zooey let slip that she wrote her own songs, which she recordedalone at home on her computer. Somewhat shy about sharing these musical morsels, she was eventually persuaded to send them to Ward.He was instantly impressed, and they soon reconvened at his Portland, Oregon, United States studio to begin work. Recorded over a period of several months between acting work (She) and touring commitments (Him), the pair found time to bring Zooey’s fledglingsongs to gorgeous fruition.”Taken from wikipedia and last.fm « hide
