Santigold and “Girls”

Singer/rapper releases new song for hit show soundtrack.

Cover for Girls Vol. 1: Music from the HBO Original Series .

Santigold’s self-titled debut dropped in 2008 and put to rest any notion that she was merely riding the colorful wave of success paved by rapper M.I.A. Santigold, born Santi White, proved that she had more skills than just rapping along to an electronic beat. On “Santigold,” fans could hear influences of punk, ska, electronic and hip-hop, and her polychromatic outfits made her visually intriguing as well.

Santigold also garnered praise with her somewhat similar yet sonically evolved second outing, Master of My Make-Believe. But today she makes news for contributing a song to the soundtrack of the hit HBO series Girls, the brain-child of writer / director / actor Lena Dunham. The soundtrack hits stores and digital merchants next month, and features music by Robyn, Belle & Sebastian, Fleet Foxes and more. In the meantime, here’s a listen to Santigold’s “Girls.”

Diversi-TV

1-2-3-4 ... What are we fighting for?

A mere two weeks after its debut, HBO’s ballsy, awkward and uncomfortably honest comedy “Girls” has become a surprising lightning rod for controversy. Depending upon which website you visit, the show is either a refreshingly feminist take on coming-of-age sitcoms or a distressingly antifeminist take on the same.

“Sex and the City” Gets a Reality Check

“Girls” on HBO

As Lena Dunham’s aspiring writer in “Girls” says, “I want to be the voice of my generation. ... Or a voice ... of a generation.” Dunham, who made her debut as the self-depricating 23-year-old writer-director-star of the indie dramedy Tiny Furniture, is certainly shaping up to be just that. Remarkably, she’s been able to parlay her award-winning feature into a gig writing, directing, producing and starring in a series for envelope-pushing HBO.

She’s not there

Nick Cave and Neko Case duet for “True Blood” season premiere

Album art for the forthcoming True Blood—Music From the Original Series, Vol. 3

As those who know and love it are fully aware, the fourth season of ”True Blood”—an HBO series created by Alan Ball and based on Charlaine HarrisThe Southern Vampire Mysteries series—premieres on Sunday night. The show takes place in the fictional North Louisiana town of Bon Temps, an old, mossy place inhabited by a host of supernatural beings. (My fondness for the show is particularly strong due to the fact that I grew up somewhere near Bon Temps, and the characters are always mentioning and visiting places that I know very well. When they do it makes me squeal/chuckle.) The show is sexy, bloody, sad and funny all at once. It’s also cool, and adding to its coolness this season is a duet between Nick Cave and Neko Case in the premiere. See, every “True Blood” episode is named after a song in that episode. Season four’s premiere was titled “She’s Not There” after the ‘60s Zombies classic. Ideas were tossed around regarding accompanying tunage, and somehow the show’s music supervisor arranged for Cave and Case—both “True Blood” fans—to cover the song together. The track will be available for download after the show airs on Sunday. Listen to it now here.
