Music Monday: Lana del rey

Her name has been buzzing, so i downloaded it last week.  With all my time in the car lately commuting to work.. i have almost every song memorized by now ;)
 She has been described as a "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra.  Which may sound funny... but after listening to the entire album.. i would have to agree.
its different. and intriguing.
something new.
Also, even if her music isn't your cup of tea.. she is killing me with her flower crowns and her vintage style.

'Born to die' buy it here and here.

Did you see her on Saturday Night Live? I find her music interesting at times, but as a performer I can't get over how awkward and planned out her every move seems to be! I found it a bit comical actually. She certainly has created a lot of buzz though and her style is lovely!

@carrie I did... haha actually thats how i heard about her. i heard that she had a terribly awkward snl performance.. so i went to watch it and saw 30 seconds and decided i wanted to hear the recordings.. (which are much better) but, im not one to totally disregard them if they aren't good live.. because if i like their album.. i like their album. plus to be honest.. i havent seen many "good" snl performances. so with that, i'll give her.. and the rest of 'em the benefit of a doubt.
