Probably too soon or late but I think her voice would go well to an omar album

Hipster Bullshit.

j/k

That song videogames is nice and smooth. I think way to much emphasis is put on her style, look and videos, rather than the actual music.

Try and listen to these songs without the video, especially for the first time. The whole aesthetic and visuals seem manufactured...which resonates along with the music. At the end of the day, (at least for me) it's about the music, I don't think she is doing stuff that's too spectacular in that realm. She is more like Lady Gaga than Bjork, by that I mean valuing visuals over musicality, and one influences the other. I think she is going to blow up, but not by the merit of her musical prowess and ability. I'm interested to give her album a spin without the 1950s Hollywood film clips over it all.

She also seems to be going along the same route as Odd Future with the over-encompassing image assertion. Although Odd future made killer beats and have incredible raps.

LDR might be style over substance...but I'll see how her full LP sits.

Just my opinion.

She looks so pissed off all the time. I find her to be intimidating at times.

I agree with listening to her music without watching her videos. The music behind her voice is also quality stuff.

I maybe like that first single of hers, but I can't watch her perform live. She lacks something and a lot of it.

Just from listening to that "videogames" clip, I'm detecting far more of an Aimee Mann influence than anything else. And those drunken ass Paz de la Huerta bits interspersed are hilarious. Paz is a hot mess. I've run into her a couple times and she's simply in another orbit.

Very interesting study in authenticity and pre-package major label goods. Music ain't bad, but the story behind her seems to be more interesting. Is the album out yet?

SNL performances were really poor in comparison to what she was doing in her own shows on her mini tour. Pretty bad lack with TV appearances (jools holland, SNL), hopefully she does herself justice on Letterman.

Just seems like hype to me. Like someone said earlier, listen to the music without all the imagery. It's really quite boring.

EDIT: Unless you mean the EP which is just the first 4 songs.

Thats "Lana Del Ray aka Lizzy Grant" the shelved 200(9) or something album, that was brought out later once hype hyped up. Some songs are reworked and upgraded for the forthcoming album. This similar tracks etc. The real deal is in 4 days amigo.

Off to the races is pretty good. The songs work MUCH better with the videos, they are put together real well. I'll give the album a spin. Her lyrics are pretty terrible.

Ok, so I knew how awesome most of the songs would be, and they are. But the bonus track "Lucky Ones" really blew me away. That border voice she has half-whisper but high but perfect on that track is superb. The whole arrangement of that song is. Wow, really taken by that one.
