"A friendship between college girls is grander and more dramatic than any romance..." This is especially true if the friendship has a great soundtrack. Thankfully, Girls
HBO's hit dramedy Girls
just recently finished up its second season trying to live up to all of the hype built up by its hugely successful debut. The season definitely had a darker feel; it dealt with some mental health and alcoholism issues. But, being as Judd Apatow is the show's executive producer, you knew there had to be some hilarity -- specifically with instances like Hannah's home-done haircut, trash dumping, and running. And you've got to love Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) making a guest appearance on the show.
So while Season 2 was kind of polarizing -- some loved it and some hated it -- it did continue to feature great tunes from the world of indie music.
The show featured female artists like Tegan and Sara and their RAC-produced track, Solange, and Santigold; it should only be expected on a show that follows the life and times of four girls that the soundtrack would be filled with the top female artists, proving that perhaps friendships between college girls really is more exciting than any romance... at least as long as the music is concerned.
