M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel have a new album under the name She & Him. It features mostly Deschanel's songs and evokes and exemplifies a classic pop songwriting craft, managing the tricky job of fulfilling expectations while feeling fresh. We'll hear She & Him and also a strikingly similar album, Spring, produced by Brian Wilson in 1972, and a couple songs from Carole King's newly reissued "Tapestry." Plus a view of Pop Craft from outside the system: the music of R. Stevie Moore.
