Girls season 3 soundtrack

There are many good things about Super Bowl Sunday, but one big drawback was this: HBO yanked its original programming for the night, which meant we got no new Girls and no new True Detective. (It must be said, though, that we got to see both grisly, bloody, existential spectacle and squirmy, embarrassing comedy every time the camera found Peyton Manning’s face.) In lieu of a new Girls episode, though, the powers that be have shared “Simplethings,” the new song that buttery R&B king Miguel contributed to the show. It’s almost as good. We’ve already heard a new Jenny Lewis song and a new Cat Power remix this season, but I’m not sure either of them can quite stand up to “Simplethings,” which just melts. Listen below.

  1. Girls was new and came on Saturday instead of Sunday

  2. Maybe a little too similar to Don’t Look Back and Arch N Point, and without the energy that made those so fantastic. Solid song, but rather underwhelming compared to his usual output. Gotta love Miguel’s productivity though.

      i must say, i’ve not really found any of his post-kaleidescope dream output to be terribly compelling, this included. don’t mean to backlash or anything, still v excited about the possibility of a new album in 2014. but KS was a big deal for me, so, high hopes i guess.
