Last night's episode of Gossip Girl was my favorite so far of the season, but I was pretty slow on the musical side of things. That is not to say that the song choices were bad. On the contrary, actually. Last night's episode included a really great cover of Hot Chip's "Ready For The Floor" by Lissy Trullie, as well as one of my favorite tracks of 2009. Here was Episode 3's full playlist:
Gossip Girl, Season 3, Episode 3: The Lost Boy
Lissy Trullie - Ready For The Floor
The World Record - Check The Score
The Broken Remotes - Weld at the Seams
Quick notes: I was specifically told not to let you guys download the Lissy Trullie track, so I put it up for you guys to stream. A real shame, this is something you guys should have. It's really good. It sort of pisses me off that someone wanting to broaden her fanbase (congrats on getting on Gossip Girl!) like Lissy Trullie isn't giving away tunes for free (especially a cover for fuck's sake). Though I do hear that Hot Chip's people are also holding off for this one. I will be fair though: she is giving away some of her original tracks away, like this one on NME.
Also, I hope "Animal" is the last Miike Snow track they play this season. It was used to great affect last night, as the closing track, but I think its time to move onto other bands, Alex. :)
