Miguel – Simplethings
Between writing the television show about our lives and installing positive body images in our impressionable minds, the crew at HBO’s Girls source some pretty great tunes for their soundtracks. Girls, Vol. 2: All Adventurous Women Do features a bunch of addictive tracks from artists like M Ward, Beck, and Lily Allen, but the heroin of the album is Miguel’s Simplethings. A combustion of slow tempo RnB, distorted guitar work, and the perfect amount of reverb makes one seductive track. “Smoke with me baby, And lay with me baby/And laugh with me baby, I just want the simple things”. If only.
