I don’t know a whole lot about this Lana Del Rey gal other than I’m drawn to her music which presents itself as nostalgic yet modern melancholic soul with a dash of hip-pop. The sad glamour, the sultry deep voice, the heavily-glossed full pout, the quasi-bouffant, the overall juxtaposition of a beautiful, broken hearted twenty-something’s ballads inspired by a sound much older and wiser. A few weeks ago I scooped up “Video Games” for my iTunes and am eagerly awaiting more from her. A limited edition 7-inch picture disc vinyl, featuring “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans” will be available October 17th via Stranger Records.
