    NPR is giving She & Him fans (and Zooey Deschanel detractors) the chance to hear the band's new album, Volume Two, a week before its release date.

    This latest collaboration between M. Ward and Deschanel won't win over those who hated 2008's Volume 1; the songs feature the same bubbly, sunny pop with Deschanel's airy voice front and center. (Personally, I find her vocals refreshing--feminine but bold and always on key.) But M. Ward fans can rejoice: there's more of him here than the last record. The best songs--"In the Sun" and Don't Look Back"--are filled with M. Ward's Chuck Berry-styled guitars, and his voice adds more than just a passing harmony. He even takes the lead for a significant part of "Ridin' in My Car."

    It's no pop masterpiece, but Volume 2 is lovely, charming, and worth a free listen.
