Think Nina Simone singing a Cat Power song over Lil Wayne‘s track
That’s how the painfully beautiful, rising star Lana Del Rey (real name Lizzy Grant) describes her retro sound. The 24 year old New Yorker has been popping up all over the blogosphere and frequently in my iTunes with her melancholic tunes and some sweet glitchy remixes by FROST, Vitamin Beats, and Mister C, all of which you can download below. You get the feeling Lana Del Rey is here to stay. If she was a stock, I’d invest everything I have.
“Video Games” and “Blue Jeans” will be available October 16 digitally and the following day on vinyl via Stranger Records.
