HBO shows have always stood out as the cream of the crop when it comes to premiere network shows. The new series VICE is helping HBO push the envelope even further with it’s hard-hitting investigative news/documentary format. Last week’s episode featured a look into China’s problems now that men outnumber women so greatly, and also takes a look at how youth in Greece and Spain are responding to the financial crisis in the reason.
While that’s all fine and dandy, we of course wouldn’t be mentioning this if the show didn’t feature some great music, and last week’s episode made sure of that by starting the episode off with “Unconsolable” by Ambassadors. The song’s mix of blues, soul, electro and modern indie pop is the perfect starting point if you’ve never heard of these up-and-comers from Brooklyn.
