Lana Del Rey

The widely discussed narco-pop firestarter Lana Del Rey stays busy enough to get up in our blog almost everyday. And over the weekend, she showed up at the Highline Ballroom during a show from the French singer and music-video director Woodkid. Del Rey and Woodkid duetted on LDR’s song “Video Games,” and we’ve got video of that below.

Also, the young bass music zone-out king Balam Acab has given the world his remix of “Video Games.” It warps and distends LDR’s sighs into an even more luxurious cloud of sound, and it generally works a whole lot better than Jamie Woon’s reworking of the same song. Grab it below.

At this point, I’ve probably spent more of my 2011 listening to various permutations of “Video Games” than I have playing any actual video games. Sheesh.

  1. This chick was everywhere last week / this weekend. It’s almost like there’s different Lana Del Rey’s scattered across the globe like different doppelganger versions of Ultimate Warrior or Doink the Clown (again, reinforcing Tom’s post regarding indie and pro-wrestling.)

    Also, she’s working with Damon Albarn and Bobby Womack and her debut album is reportedly called Born to Die (perhaps a homage to her “gangster”-ness a la Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die?)

  2. She sounds much more comfortable. Definitely tops the Jools performance.
    Not sure if it’s a good fit with Droney McGee, but, either way, she’s Baberaham Lincoln.

  3. Wow, best Lana-remix so far, so dreamy.
