Just as the hit drama The L Word lights up over 6 million screens weekly with its cast of vibrant characters, so do the show’s soundtrack albums fire up the iPods and CD players of loyal fans. The show delivers The L Word: The Third Season. The two-CD set in stores January 31 embraces twenty-four songs by a cherry-picked roster of stellar artists, deftly incorporating a refreshing variety of genres: folk, electro, country, soul, pop, classical.
Featured are songs by Tegan and Sara, Sleater Kinney, Le Tigre, Esthero, Frazey Ford (Be Good Tanyas), Tracy Bonham, D’Angelo and Boompa’s Catlow who has contributed the fast-paced and catchy title track from her debut album Kiss The World. Catlow is the new incarnation of Natasha Thirsk, lead-singer for indierock darlings The Dirtmitts, who not-so-coincidentally kicked in a song on The L Word: The Second Season.
The L Word is the highest rated series on the Showtime network. It chronicles the lives of a group of friends living in Los Angeles – both gay and straight – through stories of career, family, inner struggle, friendship and romantic relationships. The series has become a critical and ratings success, and its influence has helped usher in a revolutionary new wave of gay and lesbian television programming.
