Lena Dunham’s “Girls” Now Has a Soundtrack

Posted on: December 12th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

Lena Dunham’s Girls (executive produced by Judd Apatow) is the indie darling of the press world these days. It’s quite obvious that the HBO promo machine is ramping up hype in a big way ahead of the second season premiere January 13. A trailer made the rounds a couple weeks ago, and yesterday, an announcement of a soundtrack album. Girls – Volume 1: Music from the HBO Original Series, spelling in no uncertain terms that a sequel is underway.

The accompanying Girls compilation taps the well of successful music supervision in the series. Despite how you may or may not feel about the plotlines, or show altogether, it’s hard to ignore the predominantly left-of-the-dial tunes baked into each episode. This record touts tunes by Belle & Sebastian, Oh Land, Robyn, and Grouplove.

You can pre-order the album on iTunes for $12.99, or wait until January 8 for in-store purchase.

Full tracklist:

  1. Robyn – “Dancing On My Own”
  2. Fun. – “Sight Of The Sun” *
  3. Harper Simon – “Wishes And Stars”
  4. Santigold – “Girls” *
  5. White Sea – “Overdrawn”
  6. Grouplove – “Everyone’s Gonna Get High” *
  7. Icona Pop – “I Love It”
  8. The Echo-Friendly – “Same Mistakes”
  9. Belle & Sebastian – “I Don’t Love Anyone”
  10. Fleet Foxes – “Montezuma”
  11. Oh Land – “White Nights”
  12. The Vaccines – “Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra)”

    If I were an artist on this soundtrack, I’d be ashamed to be associated with this show and have my lawyer ask Miss Lena the ‘self-absorbed’ Dunham to take down the song from the soundtrack. Mfer.
