I am not so much into M Ward as some. Never heard She and Him. But I do have a crazy crush on ZD.

XPOST OMG Emily is no where near as hot as Zooey

So wait, you're asking if you should go for totally creepy reasons, but you won't go if it'll be a 'creepfest'?

He doesn't want to be out creeped at the creepfest. Or out creped.

the album is pleasant but dull. the melodies seem a bit aimless; i can tell with they're going for, and they're close enough to be kind of satisfying, but they miss by a bit--just aren't well-constructed enough. her voice has a nice "grain" and she does some neat things with it but maybe too laid-back?

anyway just sayin'. can't find a thread on the SHE & HIM LP.

I am hoping that she joins M. Ward onstage at Pitchfork Fest, because there's no way I'm watching that dude otherwise.

The first thread was, in retrospect, not the best idea I've ever had. I'm not sure why you've mentioned the second, though, unless you're another person who has a problem with the word "unlikely," in which case I think I explained myself pretty well on the thread. Or is the very topic of the thread somehow out of bounds? Because however inarticulately I may have expressed myself, I still think it's a pretty fascinating subject.

jaymc, Thursday, 17 July 2008 21:17 (5 years ago) Permalink

xp I never used the word "exotic."

jaymc, Thursday, 17 July 2008 21:18 (5 years ago) Permalink

I mean, suggest how I might've approached that subject differently. I don't think I was being any less sensitive than a PBS documentary would be about the same topic.

Yes!

But no seriously, would you say the same thing about Matmos, Momus, or MtnGos or some other band you're "down with on the NET!"? No, because I think you are polite.

So be careful who you talk shit about because you could appear to be impolite (like me). Learn from my mistakes.

Steve Shasta

PS: Dude is a great musician and I'm deeply sorry that all that heavy-handed B&S pabulumic tripe that you listen to has made you a cloth-eared naif.

Steve Shasta, Thursday, 17 July 2008 22:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

What are you even talking about? Oh wait, M. Ward? Haha, I didn't even realize you'd gone back to what this thread is about. I dunno, man: I've heard a few M. Ward songs and they didn't really do much for me, but I kind of like the She & Him record.

But that's sort of a weird comment to be making re politeness, because if everyone on ILM held their tongues about bands they didn't like, the board would be doomed. And your comparison to Matmos, Momus, and the Mountain Goats doesn't really hold up, because M. Ward doesn't post on ILM.

I like some Belle & Sebastian stuff but certainly not all of it and I wouldn't even say that they're a fair representation of the kind of music I like. Still, even if they were, I'm not too bothered: I get frustrated when people misconstrue my intentions (as with your calling me out on the immigrants thread), but I'm not so insecure that I'm going to care how you feel about the music I like.

jaymc, Thursday, 17 July 2008 22:21 (5 years ago) Permalink

Anyway, we both like Pavement and Fleetwood Mac, so it's all good, bro.

I think the new She & Him single, "In the Sun" was made for people who found "1-2-3-4" by Feist too hard-edged and ominous. It has a nice arrangement and subtly diverting MOR melody though.

Never heard a note of hers, but I assume she was named after the JD Salinger book, "Frannie and Zooey"

I saw something in Mojo (or somesuch) where she lists her favourite music.

"Odessey and Oracle", and such like.

She has very similar tastes, it seems, as our Alice.

Mark G, Monday, 7 June 2010 15:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

Her name was made famous by author J.D. Salinger, who wrote the classic Catcher in the Rye and the best-selling Franny and Zooey. But frisky young actress Zooey Deschanel is refreshingly defiant about how it’s pronounced. I told her I always thought it was Zooey as in “zoo.” Yet she pronounces the “oo” sound as in “oh.” Maybe we should ask Salinger, I suggested. Zooey wasn’t having any of that! “I don’t really care what Salinger says about my name,” she said. “It’s my name.”

Going to see this chick 2nite.

jaymc, Monday, 7 June 2010 16:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

Also, Slate suggests that Salinger's Zooey was meant to be pronounced like Zoe:

jaymc, Monday, 7 June 2010 16:24 (3 years ago) Permalink

ok i looked up some talk show appearances on youtube and the hosts all said it like 'zoe' so i guess it was just people IRL saying it like 'zoo-ey' after all. go fig.

Darin, Monday, 7 June 2010 18:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

Saw She & Him in Cleveland last night. Good show, Zooey and M. Ward have lots of onstage chemistry and the audience obvs loves her. They've got a crack band with them too (Dan Horne, Louie Stephens, Aaron Sperske, who have been in bands like the Lilys and Beachwood Sparks). Don't know where this "can't sing on key" stuff comes from -- she came out and did a couple songs with openers Chapin Sisters, who also backed up her set, and she was fine. They did some fairly sophisticated 3-part harmony stuff and I never heard anything that made me cringe.
