Any good host or hostess knows the mood of a dinner party can be set by the music alone. The same truth holds for TVD’s “The Dinner Party” episode, which contained some dancey tracks, such as “Pumped up Kicks” by Foster the People, as well as The National’s more subdued “Lemonworld.” TVD’s music supervisor, Chris Mollere, is a master of mirroring the episode’s feel. He can provide the score to our meals anytime. And speaking of little Miss Katherine, that last song was killer.
