If you’re a fan of Broad City (and who isn’t), and you’d like to get a better grasp of the music heard on the show, today is a good day for you. The show will be releasing an Original Series Soundtrack on October 28 via Milan and Comedy Central Records.
The soundtrack album will feature cuts such as an extended version of the show’s theme song, “Latino N’ Proud” by DJ Raff, along with tracks from performers such as Jarina De Marco and Tony Quattro.
According to Matt FX Feldman, the show’s music supervisor, when the show began, there was very little in the way of a music budget, so the show had no choice but to feature lesser-known obscure artists. In the time since, it has become a cultural phenomenon, with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton dropping by last season. Still, Feldman wants the show to stay true to its indie roots:
“When I first started working on the show, our resources were so low to the point where working with unsigned and unknown artists was the only way we could possibly afford to score an entire episode the way we wanted. These days, I see it almost as an obligation to keep the platform growing. Super duper excited that we’ve been able to physically encapsulate the sonic identity of the show with this soundtrack.”
