Friday Music Feature: Gangster Nancy Sinatra (Lana del Rey)



There is a lot of on-line buzz regarding Lana del Rey (aka Lizzie Grant). Thanks to Matt Chesterton who posted a video up on G+ I have fallen in love again.
Mucho se habla de Lana del Rey (Lizzie Grant para sus amigos). Gracias a Matt Chesterton, quien publicó un video en G+, me he enamorado otra vez.

When I say fallen in love I mean the way I did when I first heard Nirvana playing in a CD store (remember those?). Way back when, I stopped halfway to the CD racks; I made a detour and asked the guy at the counter, "who the fuck is that?"
Cuando digo enamorado estoy hablando de amor como cuando me enamore al escuchar a Nirvana por primera vez. Entré a una tienda de CD's y pare y le pregunte al chabon detrás de la caja; "Quienes carajos son ellos"?

Yes, the explicative was called for.

I also remember falling in love with Primal Scream and their Screamadelica album (remastered collector's edition).
También me acuerdo de la primer vez que escuché el CD de Primal Scream "Screamadelica".

I could go on and on, but you get the picture. And while I would not go ahead and rush and put her quite in that category, as those two albums (clearly those two are classics in there genre), she is clearly creating an image that has the potential to go big.
Puedo seguir, pero creo que entienden a lo que voy. Y quizás ella no esta a la altura de esos dos ejemplos (esos dos son clásicos de sus géneros), pero sí esta creando una imagen con una potencial muy grande.

Lana is currently working on her first new single release. The video she had for "Video Games" was beautiful. I say was because all you see now is a message saying that it's no longer available due to a copyright claim by Ryland Bouchard.
Lana esta trabajando sobre su primer disco. El video que tenia para la canción "Video Games" era bellisimo. Digo que era porque ahora no se puede ver. Se ve un mensaje diciendo que hay un reclamo por derecho de autor por Ryland Bouchard.

In any case, you can see this other video of hers that I also love.

Ferds, obrigado por escrever. Gosto musical é muito subjetivo. Pena que não compartilham o prazer nessa ocasião. Eu ainda amo a música de Lana.
