Good news: Marnie’s folk songs won’t make up the entirety of new music debuted on this season of Girls. Sorry, Marnie. But Billboard‘s news that the fourth season will feature new tracks from St. Vincent, Grimes, and Family of the Year is a more exciting musical development. READ FULL STORY

The Bleachers video for “I Wanna Get Better” feels a lot like an episode of Girls: emotional discord and screwed-up relationships set against a backdrop of real-world apartments and therapists’ offices — and of course, random celebrity cameos.
The clip opens with lead singer Jack Antonoff (also the bassist of fun., and the real-life boyfriend of Ms. Dunham) chasing after his girlfriend as she storms out of the house, leaving him for good. “This is crazy; we’re, like, not even awake yet,” he whines. “Come back inside and I’ll make you an espresso.” But she’s not going to be placated, and his day is downhill from there.
Antonoff arrives at his psychiatric practice with coffee on his crotch and a bevy of disgruntled clients to see — played by actors like Retta from Parks & Rec and Mary Kay Place from Big Love. Everyone’s screaming “I Wanna Get Better,” (which should definitely be the theme song for GIRLS):
Anyway, watch the clip here:
'Girls Vol. 2' soundtrack: Hear the new Jenny Lewis song, see the tracklist for the third-season album here -EXCLUSIVE
Last night, you might’ve watched the new season of Girls kick off — and now you can hear it, too.
Formally titled Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do…, the HBO show/cultural lightning rod’s second soundtrack collection will be available February 11. It’s slated to feature new songs from artists including Miguel, Beck, and Lily Allen — not to mention Rilo Kiley/Postal Service siren–turned–solo singer Jenny Lewis, whose track “Completely Not Me” you can hear exclusively here.
The song, as you might recall, was featured on last night’s premiere; it will also be given as a free download to those who preorder the new soundtrack, which you can do here.
Give the new Jenny Lewis song (produced by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij) a listen below, and scroll to the bottom for the album’s full tracklist:
When it comes to celebrating the exuberant women of New York City, Santigold’s giving Lena Dunham a run for her money.
The singer, whose song “Girls” is featured on the official soundtrack for HBO’s Girls, released a video for the track yesterday. It’s a giddy montage of ladies dancing and lip-syncing, interspersed with clips of Santigold and her two backup dancers going ham in what looks like a hotel bedroom. Should offer just enough feminine pride to hold you over until next week’s episode.
Watch the video after the jump:
You may have to wait until Jan. 13 for a new season of Lena Dunham’s Girls, but the soundtrack to the HBO’s show’s first season will be at your service before then.
Thanks to indie label Fueled by Ramen, the official season-one soundtrack to the groundbreaking comedy will be available for purchase beginning Jan. 8. Dunham herself took to Twitter yesterday to debut the album’s cover art, which looks more or less how you expect it would.
As for the actual soundtrack, there aren’t many surprises on that front either. The Robyn song “Dancing on My Own,” responsible for one of the more significant and memorable role in the series, kicks things off, followed by the band fun., whose guitarist Dunham has been linked to romantically.
Beyond that, fans of the HBO comedy can expect contributions from the likes of Icona Pop, Santigold, Fleet Foxes, and Belle & Sebastian. Take a look at the full Girls soundtrack below:
TV Jukebox: 'Make It Or Break It,' 'The Killing,' 'Person of Interest,' and more music-on-tv moments
Mother’s Day may be next weekend, but there’s no shortage of mama drama in the latest Jukebox. Mom’s got through (and even started) some trouble on shows including Make It Or Break It, Private Practice, Missing, and The Game.
Which isn’t to say the dads didn’t get in on the action, too, creating waves on The Killing, Revenge, and The Client List. The last few weeks also saw a steamy encounter (The Good Wife), a heartfelt tribute (Glee), and an ambush (Person of Interest), plus more music-on-TV moments from The L.A. Complex, Girls, and Mad Men.

TV Jukebox: 'Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23,' 'Magic City,' 'Girls,' and more music-on-TV moments
Behind every great lady there’s a great man singing behind her — at least that was the case for most of this week’s Jukebox. In one instance, there was even a man singing as a lady (welcome back, Glee!). This week saw one particularly untrustworthy B—- in Apartment 23, a new slew of Girls, a masseuse with a heart of gold (The Client List), and a Scandal-ous Beltway fixer with brass… well, you get where I’m going. To paraphrase the great Aretha Franklin, sisters were doing it for themselves — with the help of artists as diverse as The Clash, Sleigh Bells, Paddy Casey, and Otis Redding, of course.
