    What is the song playing in the background when Hudson is in the pool and Murray is talking to her? Something about sipping from a “chalice” and.waiting on your “status”…?

      Torch by Isa Machine and LP. That hauntingly beautiful voice you hear is LP’s. 😉

    Who is the group that played the preview for rock the kasbah, the Netflix advertisement when you are in the process of choosing a movie

    What is the song that’s playing as Bill Murray and Danny McBride enter the club? I’ve looked all over for it and can’t find it.
