She & Him is one band who played a bunch at SXSW this year and yet...I always wound up missing them for one reason or another.
ABC Amplified did a nice interview with members M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel recently that touches on her musical history (she's been singing/writing songs since she was 8), if her husband, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, contributes to her songs (no, he doesn't even hear them until after they're mastered), and the possibility of a "She & Him-Volume 3" (yes). It also includes some live footage from their SXSW performance at Cedar Street Courtyard. She & Him's overall goal with their band? "We're trying to make the greatest hits from a secret band that never existed," says Deschanel.
