Seen & Heard: Lana Del Rey

The music video for Lana del Rey's (real name: Lizzy Grant) song "Video Games" is passably cluttered with home spun looking video recordings, but not particularly interesting.  The song, however, is an oddly striking bit of down-and-out, breathy orchestral pop with del Rey's voice transforming its otherwise almost tritely youth-oriented subject matter into something haunting.  She's also done a song called "Diet Mtn Dew," and managed to transform that as well.  Basically, she's just asking to be added to my novel writing playlist.
