We’re anxiously awaiting the season finale of HBO’s invigorating new series Big Little Lies. The star-power alone—Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern—makes this must-watch television, but what really brings it all home is the music.

If you’re like us, you’re probably mapping out your theory of who murdered whom as we speak. Why not soundtrack your investigation with our Big Little Lies playlist, courtesy of The Spectrum (Ch. 28), which plays many of the acts featured in the series?

“It’s been so fun to watch so many Spectrum artists featured on Big Little Lies – it feels like we’re the house band for the show!” Programming Director Jess Besack says.  “In the same way that you hear classic rock meeting new rock on The Spectrum, you hear rock icons like Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac in the mix alongside some of our newer discoveries like Leon Bridges and Alabama Shakes on each episode. Plus, Michael Kiwanuka’s haunting theme song – Cold Little Heart – has been one of our listeners’ favorites lately.”

Sit back, relax and imagine yourself in the picturesque seaside town of Monterey (but with less murder). Click here to listen On Demand!
