Get ready for an early Christmas present as the She & Him band have just announced their return to the scene after a five year absence with a trio of holiday concerts!

She & Him is an American musical duo consisting of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. After the success of their first album, “Volume One”, in 2008, the duet evolved into a bonafide band realising two more albums in the following years, aptly named Volume 2 and Volume 3. Their music is thoroughly spontaneous, simple and deliberate, in the same vein as their albums and band name! In an interview with the New York Times, Deschanel said: “I wanted a name that was very humble, modest and anonymous.” Matt agrees: “We wanted the music to come first, which sort of explains the band name as well as the names of the records. The songs are what we want people to remember.”

In 2011, the band released, “A Very She & Him Christmas” a 12 track Christmas album with a range of classic holiday songs covers delivered with the typical, quirky Deschanel vocals and the cool allure of M Ward. The album is an oasis of calm, perfect for winding down over Christmas without a hint of the mayhem of Christmas shopping.

If you haven’t heard of She & Him, don’t miss the chance to get into the festive mood and see them live at their “A Very She & Him Christmas Party” concert with three dates  all set to take place in the USA, between Los Angeles (06-12-18), San Francisco (08-12-18), and Austin (10-12-18) this December. Can’t make it? Enjoy their albums from the cosy comfort of home!

L100C LISTEN: NAO

NAO BlogpostArtboard 2


As the days grow shorter, keep winter blues at bay with some fresh tracks from NAO. After the release of her new single “Make It Out Alive”the British artist has officially announced her new album Saturn. Released on October 26 and featuring masterpieces like “Make It Out Alive” and “Another Lifetime”, the album drifts through a mindset in flux, largely focusing on heartbreak and the regenerative bliss that comes after.

But why name it Saturn?  

“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth. So by the time you’re around 29, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.” – NAO.

The East Londoner has created the kind of tracks that will have you singing to your mirror and her honest exploration of love, lust, and hardship will keep you awake on those longer nights.
