Taken from one of the best singles of the year, Lana Del Rey‘s double A-side Video Games 7″, out October 10 on Stranger Records.
I love everything that Lana del Rey has been putting out. Can we please have a Gorilla vs. Bear Presents show with her soon?
YES YES YES YES YES!!!
Lookin/soundin good BB!
She truly puts a tingle in my dingle.
Great song! Almost as good as the a-side “Video games”.
FUCK. She’s got it.
Forgive me raining on the Rey parade, but does anyone else find her videos annoying?
There is always talking over the top from the stock video filler footage they mix in with the footage of her singing. The production costs on these things must be virtually zero.
That being said, her voice and songs are amazing. But the videos do nothing for me and I don’t say that often about a woman who is very easy on the eyes.
The production costs are virtually zero because she makes the videos herself. And I think the style of them says something about arriving into fame in our youtube generation.
I think that the persona she is trying to create for herself and the sound she is trying to embody fits perfectly with all the clips of fuzzy footage. And when she stares doe-eyed in the camera, to me it almost seems like some sort of commentary on or glorification of people today self-publishing their thoughts through small, low-quality webcams on laptops.
To me it makes all her words and images even more genuine and that much more alluring.
Love ya Lana.
ditto on everything Roark said.
She’s def got a brand of emotive and big music that seems to be coagulating quite well. Totally diggable. I want more!
regarding above, i don’t understand how “zero” production costs are a a minus. Her videos may not be everything they could be, but they certainly go far to convey artistic expansion into a broad cultural and historical landscape.
I like the videos. I also like that they are carry the same theme that compliments her music. Just my two cents.
WTF! this is a B-side ! This could have been a nice and proper single by itself!
her vocals are so annoying. shes sings like katy perry or something.
I’m betting she’s packing some serious bush hair.
I wouldn’t mind that at all.
This is unbelievable. Is this real?
Interesting songstress, and I dig the random images of the vid too! If David Lynch were in his prime, he’d be putting this song in his next film (and adding his own random images).
the lyrics are far less cheesy than video games. but the video is the same shit. montage/gazing longingly into the camera/montage. catchy as fuck though.
dont even mind that aesthetic
I think the lyrics of video games are a little misconstrued, as the song is called video games, and the subject matter is something of a perfect submissive female relationship. It’s more about how that sort of relationship only happens in our fantasies, if you listen to where she places video games through the course of the song, you’ll see what I mean. Otherwise, I was fighting it for awhile, but this lady is a lovely songstress. I actually appreciate her collage videos, as it not only compliments her “old” aesthetics, but gives her an artistic flourish without being pretentious. I’m looking forward to hearing more from her.
someone’s gonna make a killin’ sampling this
Too much duckface.
I am sure her videos are like this because she has no money to make a real video. She has only be on a lable for a few months.
why is this a different song than the one on the blog? i wanna know what song starts with the image of the guy smoking a cigarette, its way better than this one
wait sry yall just realizing my internet did a little bit of transposing for some reason
This bitch needs to smile more.
i like the part a 2:45 when she brushes her hair back and then picks up the song a moment later. Tyler the Creator does the same thing in one of his videos. Something about that gets me.
But this Lana Del Rey is making some cool music. I think Diet Mtn Dew is my favorite. I don’t know if she’ll break extra big but she’s definitely on the way.
