    Lana Del Rey

    So a friend of mine discovered this girl in the beginning of 2010. She had a full length album (then called Lana Del RAY / real name Lizzy Grant). Now she's going by Lana Del Rey and working on a new album that will act as her official debut.

    Her song "Video Games" has recently gotten a lot of blog attention, including Arjan Writes most recently, and I foresee it/her getting even more acclaim as the year progreses. She has a fantastic, Hope Sandoval-esque voice but also with a witchy, Stevie Nicks quality. "Video Games" is an eerie, trailer park love song with the perfect amount of forlorn lyrics and even some harp.

    Listen/watch/love:

    This is being digitally released in October, along with another new song called Blue Jeans. Video for the latter premiers this upcoming week!

    I just came across her on Pitchfork, and I really the song and her voice, especially. I look forward to hearing more from her.

    Oh, fantastic. Great find. Love "Video Games" & "Kinda Outta Luck" and "Diet Mtn Dew" are also great. I just found this remix of "DMD" on youtube - the Oxford Remix? - and it's just lovely.

    Video Games is wonderful. I was walking out around Hollywood at 2am, and it came up in my iPod and for a minute I didn't hate LA.

    I'm totally obsessed with this woman lately, can't wait to have some material. I love that she describes her style as 'Hollywood Sad Core'.

    Quite a few big name collaborators seem to be getting on board with the debut (official) album, not sure how I feel about this. It could work out well, someone like Florence seemed to need that to find her feet. On the other hand, they could end up sucking all the appealing parts out of her.

    My concern as well. Some fantastic people at the helm, and I agree completely that her appeal could be forced into generics.

    Updated the link so you can watch the edited Video Games video (not that different, maybe a little better actually)

    Also, an article that talks about her being influenced by David Lynch:
