We could hate them for being so perfect — if married musicians Josh Ritter and Dawn Landes weren’t so nice. They had us at “Hello. How about some coffee?” and barely batted an eye when we invaded their adorable Brooklyn apartment to shoot this week’s video.
The low-key, stylish couple — who are about to celebrate their first anniversary — set up a guitar and keyboard in their kitchen and performed “Southern Pacifica.” It’s off Ritter’s album So Runs the World Away, coming out May 4.
Both Ritter and Landes (whose album Sweet Heart Rodeo came out in January) have a folksy, borderline country sound we can’t get enough of. And they both sing about love — in a sweet, noncheesy way — a lot. It must be nice living with your muse.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
