8/40

M. Ward, 'A Wasteland Companion'

She and Him's him mixes up folky beauty, rough-cut gems.

Read the RS review: "If Matt Ward tends to be overlooked among indie rock's greatest talents, it's because dude hangs back – behind Zooey Deschanel in She and Him, behind Conor Oberst and Jim James in Monsters of Folk, behind the scenes as collaborator . . . But his own LPs show why everyone wants to be his friend."
