She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward) just released a new EP called The Capitol Studios Session. The digital-only release features new version of four songs taken from their latest Volume 3 album.
Volume 3 was released earlier in May, and is a bit of a misnomer as it is the fourth studio album by She & Him (the third album was a Christmas special, A Very She & Him Christmas).
The Capitol Studios Session features Zooey Deschanel, M. Ward, Abigail Chapin, Lily Chapin, Mike Coykendall, Tom Hagerman, Scott McPherson, and Chris Scruggs. It was recorded at Capitol Studios and mixed by Larry Crane.

- Shadow of Love

We saw Matt and Kim live a few years ago, and they were so much fun. What's new with the duo? They are selling all their MP3 albums for $5.99 each (sale ends December 7th). Their final year-end show will be in New York at Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays benefit show at the Beacon Theatre on December 7th. Ticket and information at truecolorsfund.org.
Also, in case you missed it, last month Matt & Kim released a remix album called Lightning Remixes on FADER. If you get the album on limited vinyl, it comes with a die-cut featuring a topless Kim.
