Big Boi – “Mother Of Dragons” & Wale – “King Slayer”

Though the many musical crossovers of Game Of Thrones have been more rock-based artists like the National, the Hold Steady, Sigur Rós, and that dude from Coldplay, the world of hip-hop seems to fit much better into its themes. Yesterday we got word HBO would be releasing a mixtape of Game Of Thrones-inspired hip-hop featuring… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of 2013

Maybe it’s because I spend the bulk of my time reading and writing about music or talking with people who do the same, but as much as I love TV and movies on their own merits, the second or third sentence I’ll say about any given piece of visual media usually deals with what sort… More »

Sigur Rós To Appear On Game Of Thrones

There was a time many winters ago when the sign that a band had “made it” was to get an appearance on The Simpsons. But that was a long time ago, and now it seems like more and more bands are heading over to Westeros to get some respect. According to EW, Sigur Rós are… More »

The Hold Steady – “The Bear & The Maiden Fair”

SPOILER ALERT: A new Hold Steady song played over the closing credits of last night’s Game Of Thrones. Does that count as a spoiler? It surprised the hell out of me.

Watch Chvrches Cover The Game Of Thrones Theme

A couple of weeks ago, the narco-folk singer Marissa Nadler posted a wordless, a capella cover of the theme from the HBO show Game Of Thrones that she’d recorded.

Hear Marissa Nadler’s Cover Of The Game Of Thrones Theme

Game Of Thrones makes its triumphant return to HBO on Sunday night, and I am so amped. So, it would seem, is spectral folk singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler, who likes the show’s awesome wordless theme music so much that she recorded her own haunted a capella version of it. Nadler’s take, produced by Hallelujah The Hill… More »

The National – “The Rains Of Castamere”

The only time I can remember anyone actually listening to music on Game Of Thrones was when (spoiler) that little asshole King Joffrey had a minstrel’s tongue cut out for singing a song that made fun of him. But the awesome HBO show is still getting its own soundtrack, and that soundtrack has somehow found… More »
