"Lotta Love"

She & Him cover Neil Young

Image via DominoDominoSeeing as how their career started with a cover – a recording of Richard & Linda Thompson’s “When I Get To The Border” for the independent film The Go-Getter – which M Ward scored and Zooey Deschanel starred in – it’s not surprising that She & Him have a yen for reinterpreting classic tunes. And when your sound is devoted to the recreation of the golden age of pop music, there’s lots of material to draw on.

For the b-side of their first single in the UK, “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?” from 2008’s Volume One, they turned their attention to Neil Young’s “Lotta Love”, which appeared on his 1978 album Comes A Time, as well as Nicolette Larson’s Nicolette. Larson’s version would become a top ten single; Young’s would only come out as a b-side.

She & Him will release their second album Volume Two this week and play the Phoenix on June 9. Neil Young continues to release material from his Archives and is working on a new album. And is awesome.

    oh come on.
    She should focus on acting, he should focus on doing his amazing stuff alone. all that S&H, Monsters Of Folk thing is gotta stop.
    I’m too affraid to check their version of the Thompson’s song. they should cover Thompson twins instead.

    She and Him at Phoenix are sold out already. Any bets on an upgrade venue?
