Lena Dunham's smash hit HBO show Girls first premiered back at SXSW Film 2012. Being known for her fresh take on the complicated lives of modern, forward-thinking and hip twenty-something women in New York, it makes complete sense that she would set her scenes using fresh and hip music of the most notable up-and-comers of the last year. The soundtrack, available January 8th, boasts quite a few SXSW Music alumni.
Dunham, music supervisors Manish Raval and Tom Wolfe, and producer Kevin Weaver collaborated on the collection that not only replays your favorite scenes from the show, but creates a mix tape of the trendiest music acts. Girls–Volume 1 features fun., Sleigh Bells, Robyn, Fleet Foxes, and Santigold according to Rolling Stone. Tune in January 13th when Girls second season premieres and showcases much more music from today's stars on the rise and you can start guessing what may appear on Volume 2.
