I hadn't heard much about Lana Del Rey, until I saw her notorious performance on SNL a couple of weeks ago. She was ripped apart for her awkward stance and strangely flat singing voice. But then of course this was the media, and blood in the water draws out extremely sharp claws. I thought there must be something a bit deeper to the self-proclaimed, "gangsta Nancy Sinatra." So, naturally, I decided to look at her other music. And I loved it.
That indie/hipster hiding deep, deep inside of me?
Is oh so very happy.
