    Anyone got recommendations for Lana-esque albums that predate LDR???

    Chris Isaak - Heart Shaped World
    Julee Cruise - Floating into the Night
    Beth Orton - Central Reservation

    I just realized a possible Beth Orton influence today when I was listening to the title track from CR.

    Lana actually reminds me a lot of Heather Nova - especially around the time of Siren and South.

    ^ good suggestion, I never really got into her.

    I also listened to Trailer Park by Beth Orton and thought, isn't "trailer park siren" pretty much the exact same thing she was going for with her pre-fame stuff

    Lol I was expecting something special. Somebody mentioned white horses in the tour backdrop that would've been cool.

    Some fans are saying the video wasn't for White Mustang to begin with but for her song "Best American Record" (also known as Architecture). After the song leaked Lana scrapped plans to include it on the new album. Someone uploaded the new video with that song instead and it's so much better.

    Eh, I disagree. It's better with the White Mustang song.

    Well, that video got blocked quickly.
    I've never heard that Best American Record song, though... Was it good? So many people keep mentioning it.

    White Mustang is maybe my favourite song on the album, and this video doesn't do it justice so meh...

    The guy is cute.
    That's all I can say about that video.
    When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there.

    I thought he was the ugliest neckbeard love interest yet but I'm pretty sure she casts these guys by walking into a room and saying to herself "which one probably has the worst syphilis?"

    It's not bad, but if it were on the album, it would be the most predictable basic LDR track by a long shot. Her guy is making his best American record and he did it for the faaaaame, blah blah blah, ruined youth, broken dreams, blah.

    Oh my god, yes, so much. Lana Del Rey has not yet cast a fuckable guy in any of her videos imo.

    I think that's the point though!! "I'm so depressed that my standards are lower than nothing" - that was the Ride video. For the others, I think most people aren't expecting a classically glamorous beauty like her to be cuddling up with gnarly hipsters, but that's why she does it.

    I love how she approaches this stage persona from every possible angle. I get genuine feels, but it's ridiculous too - kinda like how Fori could be simultaneously genius and horrible. The sad girl image seems so cliche, yet no one else commits to it like she does.
