'Revenge' star Gabriel Mann: What's On My iPod

The first season finale of ABC’s hit primetime soap Revenge featured an excellent use of Florence + the Machine’s “Seven Devils,” and that good taste extends to more than just the show’s music supervisor, Season Kent.

Gabriel Mann — a.k.a. the show’s tousle-haired billionaire/amateur trouble-shooter Nolan Ross — and other members of the cast can often be spotted at concerts all around Los Angeles, or trading mixes with each other between takes.

In fact, Mann is one of the most enthusiastic, music-blog-knowledgeable stars ever to talk to EW for our regular On My iPod feature. Check out his impressive list below.

Alt-J, “Slow Dre”
It’s just a killer. I think it’s the best thing I’ve heard out there recently. That one is getting burned to death on my playlist.”

Bear in Heaven, “Sinful Nature”
This album is probably top five for me in 2012, maybe even top three. I like the whole record, but particularly the song ‘Sinful Nature,’ which has a very twisted video. It has a Pretty Woman concept behind it, except everyone is melting. Like, Julia Roberts is melting! It’s great.”

Youngblood Hawke, “We Come Running”
In terms of something a little more poppy, I’m definitely bobbing my head to this one. It mashes up a whole bunch of different kind of sounds: There’s a poppy emo thing with a kind of low-fi bloggy thing. I don’t know, that particular song really feels like a stroke of genius. And it’s just a good name! You don’t even need to listen to the song, just drop the band’s name and you’re good.”

The XX, Coexist
I find that it is definitely a bookend to their first album, but the simplicity and beauty of the songwriting is incredibly effective. Whatever they have discovered in the way that they like to make music—it’s just the sexiest record ever.” READ FULL STORY

TV Jukebox Finale Edition! 'Desperate Housewives,' 'House,' 'Castle,' and more music-on-TV moments

The end has come, Jukeboxers! There’s an apocryphal story that the Inuit people have hundreds of words for snow. These past few weeks, we at Jukebox probably could have used about that many synonyms for cliffhanger. Between planes crashing, kidnappings, births, deaths, weddings, reunions, and dance parties, it’s been a groovy goodbye to the 2011-2012 TV season. Check out our picks below and make sure to click through to the final page to listen to a track-for-track Spotify playlist of these “show tunes.” (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!)

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. ComplexGirls, and Mad Men.

TV Jukebox: 'Chuck,' 'The Lying Game,' 'Royal Pains,' and more music-on-TV moments

Seduction. Solidarity. Suspicion. Swagger. Stolen goods. Secret twins and… spirits distilled in the basement? The last two weeks have served up some tear-inducing moments, both of the so-sad variety (goodbye, Chuck!) and of the laugh-’til-you-cry ilk (hello, Jess and Nick almost-kiss on New Girl that we never would have seen coming!). Our favorite TV shows have featured a man on fire (How I Met Your Mother), an elaborate group waltz (The Vampire Diaries), a winner-take-all footrace between elementary school children (Raising Hope), and a long-awaited vindication (The Good Wife). And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, show tunes fans. We’ve also got musical moments from Revenge, The Lying Game, Royal Pains, The Secret Circle, and Ringer. Check out our picks below.

TV Jukebox: 'Californication,' 'The Game,' 'CSI' and more music-on-TV moments this week

The latest spate of first-run episodes certainly kicked off 2012 with a bang, and boy have we got a supersized Jukebox for you this week, music fans.

Despite how messy things were on screens, the music underpinning them all ended up falling into fairly neat categories. We’ll start with the juiciest hook-ups from The Vampire Diaries and Body of Proof; unfortunately, every relationship must end, and that’s where Jersey Shore and Californication enter the fray.

Somewhere between all that making out and breaking up, fights raged across the networks on Suburgatory, CSI: NY, Mob Wives, The Game, and Once Upon a Time. Peace was made on How I Met Your Mother, Nikita, Grey’s Anatomy, and CSI: Miami. That leaves only Queen V — Victoria Grayson.

The deliciously diabolical Revenge puppet-master belongs in a category all her own. How did music ranging from indie rock to rap figure into all this coming together and falling apart?  Keep reading… (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: SPOILERS ahead!) READ FULL STORY

TV Jukebox: 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Hart of Dixie' feature our favorite songs on TV this week

Valentine’s Day may still be nearly three months away, but we saw some serious sensuality in our favorite shows’ song choices this week. There was also a whole lot of heartbreak, a meat truck moment that would have been best kept private, and a dead body for good measure. From a 1970s R&B icon to an Irish electronic trio, plus some old-fashioned singer-songwriters and an experimental musician in the mix, keeping reading to see our Jukebox picks below! READ FULL STORY

TV Jukebox: 'Parks and Recreation,' 'Grimm,' 'Parenthood' feature our favorite songs on TV this week

As we kept our ears perked up for this week’s best show tunes, we saw a trend: Family. In fact, we had a TV Jukebox first, with songs from both British folksters Richard and Linda Thompson and also their son Teddy.

As the Thompsons would know as well as anyone, family can take you on a crazy ride. This week’s music expressed that poetically and, at times, hilariously. From letdowns to glorious build-ups, harboring dark secrets and sweet memories, and encompassing Irish oddballs and naked roommates (see: New Girl), family takes all kinds. See this week’s picks below:  READ FULL STORY

TV Jukebox: 'Revenge,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'American Horror Story' feature our favorite songs on TV this week

Music rang through the Upper and Lower East Sides this week, hung over the Hamptons, and emerged from a mass grave on sunny Los Angeles’s darkest block. As fall settles in, show tunes seem to be taking a turn for the moody, but don’t worry, we’ve made sure to include some upbeat numbers in there and one very unexpected Betty White shout-out. See our picks below! (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: SPOILERS follow!) READ FULL STORY
