KEXP is the New Black: A Jenji Kohan Birthday Video Roundup

Flaca

If you’re one of those devouring the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black, you’ve got this lady to thank: creator/writer/executive producer Jenji Leslie Kohan, who celebrates her 46th birthday today. And if you’re a KEXP listener who watches this show, you’ve surely recognized music from many KEXP artists woven into the sometimes horrifying, sometimes heartwarming scenes — including Regina Spektor’s catchy, but sometimes maddening theme song “You’ve Got Time.”

In honor of Jenji Kohan’s birthday, we’ve compiled a Video Roundup of just a smattering of those tracks, a playlist as diverse as the prisoners of Litchfield Penitentiary themselves. (Don’t worry; no spoilers!) And if you’re wondering about all the Nada Surf songs in season one, their drummer Ira Elliot makes a guest appearance that season as the drummer for Sideboob, the fictional band fronted by Warden Joe Caputo (aka actor Nick Sandow). In fact, you should scroll down to Nada Surf’s 2014 Bumbershoot session and check out Elliot’s shirt. So, stop looking for that chicken, don’t throw that pie, and let’s take a look at the songs of Orange is the New Black. (And huge thanks to the OITNB music Tumblr for their crazy in-depth research!)
