We just can’t stop listening to these songs/watching these videos this week.
Today we kick off with Lana Del Ray, who looks like a Disney princess, dresses like a Nabokov heroine, sounds like a cross between Tennis and Feist, and sings about eternal topics of summertime boredom, sex, and good fitting jeanwear. In short: nothing here not to like.
Here are the videos for “VIDEO GAMES” and “BLUE JEANS” which will be the A and B sides respectively of her EP, which we can expect on October 17th. Get ready to develop a major crush.
BONUS: Her debut S/T album was released on iTunes in January 2010 (produced by vet David Kahne [known for his work with Paul McCartney, the Strokes, and Regina Spektor]) and has since been deleted–but ask around for it, since one of your friends may have it (Cale sent me my copy, which is perma-playing on my iPod right now).
