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](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2012/?conference=music#). 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](http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/fun-sleigh-bells-robyn-line-up-for-girls-soundtrack-20121210#ixzz2FK7JBDTj). 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*.
