Music supervisor for 'Revenge,' 'Arrow,' and 'The Fault In Our Stars' makes us a fall TV playlist

season-kent

The most important movie soundtrack this year was undoubtedly the top-shelf compilation put together by Season Kent for The Fault In Our Stars, and not just because it gave us Charli XCX’s inimitable “Boom Clap.” Kent has quickly become one of the go-to names in music supervision, and though she’s working on more and more film projects (she just got started working on the Magic Mike sequel), she has primarily made her bones on television.

This season, she returns to both Arrow and Revenge, and adds the brand new Arrow spin-off The Flash to her portfolio. In an effort to give our Shazam apps a rest during the forthcoming TV season, we asked Kent to make us a playlist of songs that we’ll eventually be hearing under our favorite dramatic moments and montages. Check out her picks and listen to the Spotify playlist below.

Hear a 'Sons of Anarchy' star cover 'Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)'

Mark-Boone-Junior

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter informed fans at Comic-Con that the show’s final ride will be too bumpy for Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) to take a timeout for another gig as an Elvis impersonator. But here’s a consolation for those wanting to hear Boone sing again—and it’s for a good cause.

Timed to the premiere of the FX drama’s seventh and final season, Rock the Cause Records will release Boone’s cover of the Sonny Bono-penned classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” featuring producer/singer/songwriter Kevin Bowe to iTunes on Sept. 9. Net proceeds of the song will benefit the nonprofit label, which has raised more than a million dollars for various charities, to help support the organization’s internal operating expenses. EW has the premiere below. READ FULL STORY

Watch a clip of 'Garfunkel and Oates' guest-starring the actual Oates

Comedy folk duo Garfunkel and Oates recently followed in the footsteps of past comedy folk music duos like Flight of the Conchords and the Smothers Brothers by bringing their act to the small screen. Last week, IFC aired the first episode of Garfunkel and Oates, which follows the ups and downs of a lightly fictionalized version of the pair as they play uncomfortable corporate gigs, try to land TV appearances, deal with comedian boyfriends who use their sex lives as joke fodder, and face other challenges comedy folk music acts apparently encounter.

The pair have assembled an impressive lineup of guest stars for their first season, including Chris Parnell, Natasha Leggero, Anthony Jeselnik, Tig Notaro, Steve Agee, Chris Hardwick, and, most improbably, Sir Ben Kingsley. But in terms of metatextual humor, it’s hard to beat a cameo from the group’s partial namesake John Oates. He appears in an episode entitled “Rule 34″ (airing this Thursday, Aug. 14), in which Garfunkel and Oates encounter a porn version of themselves played by Abby Elliott and Sugar Lyn Beard.

We have an exclusive sneak peek at Oates’s scene, plus a Q&A with the soul-pop star about his acting debut.

Watch A$AP Rocky hang out at Kathy Griffin's house in a NSFW scene from new Noisey doc here -- EXCLUSIVE

ASAP-ROCKY-KATHY-GRIFFIN.jpg

The upcoming A$AP Rocky documentary SVDDXNLY is not short on celebrity cameos: There be Snoop; there be Macklemore; there be Drake and Rihanna and Schoolboy Q and Big Sean and Bun B and Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa and Jeremy Scott and Glee‘s Naya Rivera looking like she took a real wrong left turn at the Glendale Galleria.

But the hour-long film’s maximum bonkers moment may be the footage of Rocky’s visit to the Los Angeles home of actress/comedian/Bravolebrity Kathy Griffin, in which two famous people arrive as strangers and leave as death-wish friends, and A$AP learns many new things about sex, secret handshakes, and how to light a very expensive fireplace from the future.

Click below to watch what happened when A$AP met Kathy –it’s just like when Harry Met Sally, but with 87% more hand job jokes. (Again, this clip is not NSFW): READ FULL STORY

Fake 'Orange Is the New Black' band has a real album

(Spoilers if you haven’t watched episodes 5 and 6 of the show’s new season, albeit not very important spoilers.)

Yes, we mean Joe Caputo’s band: Sideboob. The prison employee’s surprise passion for — what do we call it? — big house rock was one of the great moments of character shading that came early in the Netflix prison dramedy’s second season. But another reveal might be even better: You can actually listen to some of his band’s music online, and even buy their album.

'Grey's Anatomy': Listen to Amos Lee cover 'Like a Virgin' ahead of tonight's episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Grey’s Anatomy‘s tenth season has been about experimenting: Surgeons experimenting with new trials, Karev experimenting with a new practice, and even music supervisors experimenting with new music.

Following in the show’s recent trend of having artists cover classic 1980s songs for its soundtrack, this week’s big episode, which will feature the return of Isaiah Washington’s Dr. Preston Burke, will include a brand new-version of Madonna’s iconic 1984 hit “Like a Virgin” — performed by acclaimed singer-songwriter Amos Lee (Mission Bell, last year’s Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song).

We’ve got the exclusive stream of the song. Listen below:

Nirvana's Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic talk missing Kurt Cobain, van travel on 'The Tonight Show'

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which means that New York is overrun with rock legends. Jimmy Fallon has been welcoming new members of the HOF on his show all week, and last night he sat down with Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic to talk about Kurt Cobain, the band’s origins, and the psychosis required to play in front of 350,000 people.

'Archer': New 'Danger Zone' video -- EXCLUSIVE

Unfamiliar with country’s hottest new star, Cherlene? Well, that may be because she doesn’t exist. “Cherlene” is actually a Judy Greer-voiced character on the animated FX spy comedy Archer whose most recent season has tracked her unlikely rise through the country ranks (at least those parts of the season which haven’t tracked the feckless attempts by her colleagues to sell a metric tonne of cocaine).

'Grey's Anatomy': Listen now to haunting 'Don't You Want Me' cover -- EXCLUSIVE

The March 6 episode of Grey’s Anatomy finds TV’s most amorous doctors dealing with the hospital’s new non-fraternizing policy, so it makes sense that one of the songs we’ll hear in the hour is Young Summer’s slow, moving cover of the Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me.” We’ve got your exclusive full-length stream below. The track is available now on iTunes. READ FULL STORY
