HBO’s new original series Station Eleven eases us into a ruthless post-apocalyptic America, but in a way that is almost comforting.
Maybe it’s the lack of zombies. Maybe it’s Liza Richardson.
Richardson, the show’s music supervisor, once lived in the Moon Mansion in East Dallas, and she was a radio DJ here, on KNON and KERA, before moving to California.
She’s also the music supervisor for HBO’s Lovecraft Country, among many other well-known series and movies, and her work deserves a chef’s kiss.
In episode 8 of Station Eleven, we hear Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You),” sung appropriately sweet and earnest by one of the characters, through a karaoke machine. What a perfect use of and tribute to the classic ’90s pop song by Preston Hollow’s own Lisa Loeb. We loved it almost as much Sarah Silverman’s fictional Lisa Loeb cover band, The Loeb Trotters.
As a writer from Vulture put it, “I’m thrilled to learn it survives the apocalypse.”
