She & Him - Fools Rush In (Rick Nelson Cover)

Instead of a re-hash of info I brought you last week, I'll continue throughout the unveiling of Levi's Pioneer Sessions free downloads in this fashion. Here's a quick sentence: She & Him covered Rick Nelson's Fools Rush In. Then I'll post a picture.




Then I'll say something like, "hey this sounds pretty much like what you'd expect this duo to sound like when they take on a classic track as such".


Then we'll all smile, high five each other, download the track and be on our way.


Oh, but this time, we're posting the video too. Some say that variety is the spice of life.

She & Him: Amplified (behind the band video!)

In ABCNews's latest webisode of Amplified, which features today's hottest musicians and the stories behind how their acts got together, Dan Harris talks with the darlings of folky indie rock, She & Him. With their sophomore album, Volume Two, seeing a late March 2010 release, the pair have been on a constant tour pre-SXSW, through NYC last month, and on throughout the summer.




Watch as Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward talk about how they met, why she kept her songs secret for so long and why she doesn’t play She & Him tunes for her husband (Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard) until after they’re done.


Buy Volume Two here and check out the video below.
