She & Him

Today I'm talking about folk indie duo She & Him.

"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."

That's their claim to fame and every word is true. I love listening to them while driving down the road on a sunny day, while I'm in that oh so perfect mood, and also on those dreary days that you wish for even a drop of sun.

She & Him have two albums out and will be putting out a Christmas Album later this year. 

Here's one of my favorite songs from their first albums.

And here's one from my second.

If you have an indie bone in your body this group is for you. Their simple and sweet sound reaches even the most melancholic of souls and makes everything right.

Update - Or, Where the Hell Have I Been?

I haven't posted here in forever! I have a good reason though. I promise. I've had to do two factory resets on my laptop in three days. I'm having major issues and I'm too stubborn to go pay for someone to fix it. I've spent most of this morning transfering all my files (again) to my 2TB external and I plan on keeping them there for a while. I'm currently waiting for my laptop to turn on so I'm using my time to make jam. More on that later. So wish me luck and hopefully I'll be back here soon.
