Lana Del Rey: Born to Die

Not brilliant enough to warrant the kind of hype it did. There are some songs like Carmen, the singles that show her future potential but it doesnt carry through consistently.

There is however something viscerally connective about songs like Video Games that cannot be denied and what made me a fan of her first album.

She is dubbed the "gangster Nancy Sinatra" but Sinatra's vocals were strong and she embraced her role as a heartbreaker in her music. Beautifully haunting as Lanas voice is sometimes I would like to see her embrace stronger more refined lyrics in her future projects.

7/10

I never made it past the fifth track. Am I missing out on anything?

More from the east coast. Beothuk Words, anyone?

Video Games is kinda cool, but it doesn't leave me with any desire to listen to more.

i really love the song Born to Die. Video games is pretty awesome too. heck, i like that whole 4 song ep a lot, as i think i said earlier.

i listened to the whole album a couple times and a lot of it is pretty meh. too many cliches, too much talking about love, not enough focus on good songs.

for Neil Young fans, if you head to http://www.neilyoung.com/ you can hear a 20 minute total jam song that Neil record with his old band Crazy Horse. After the 20 minute mark (ish) it turns into Cortez the Killer, one of the best Neil Young (with Crazy Horse) songs.

Absolutely amazing little song there.

I seriously hope this leads to a reunion/tour, and it's not just the build up to another archival release or unreleased stuff.

Listened to the "Born To Die" single a few times - don't get what the fuss is about. The production was very well done, but the song itself is pretty lame.

Haven't listened to much 2012 stuff. The most recent release that is getting lots of play on my iPod is last year's Sound Kapital - the latest Handsome Furs album. It's outstanding!

There hasn't been many releases that have intrigued me yet. But this month there are new albums dropping for Shearwater, Islands, Field Music, Lambchop, Of Montreal, Plants and Animals, and Sleigh Bells.

Then in March it gets even better, with new Springsteen, Magnetic Fields, Andrew Bird, and Shins. Just found out Ane Brun also has a new album coming in April - LOVE her!

Sasquatch Lineup was announced, and it doesn't interest me half as much as a few recent years have.

Bon Iver
Beck
Jack White
Tenacious D
The Shins
The Roots
Beirut
Explosions in the Sky
Wild Flag
Childish Gambino
Tune Yards
Feist
Metric
Girl Talk

loads of other "small" bands, too.

Frankly, I think the lineup is bad. But I never was a fan of Tenacious D or big on The White Stripes. Bon Iver, Beck and The Shins are the only big draws for me, and even then I wouldn't make the trip for them.

edit: war on drugs, kurt vile, and the walkmen are all there. who i'd love to see... but still.

Tenacious D are really good live - truly hilarious. Their recorded material is useless however.

Beck is outstanding live. And Wild Flag should be good, as Sleater-Kinney was known for their shows.

Beirut and Tune-yards would be big draws for me as well. The latter are quite interesting live, as you see how sparse their set-up really is.

You've seen Beck? What was he touring when you saw him? I used to love him back in the 90's, and just recently got into him again.

"Modern Guilt" is absolutely phenomenal

I saw him on the Midnite Vultures tour.

I loved all the Prince-mocking falsetto stuff, like on Debra and Peaches and Cream, but wondered if he could pull it off live. He not only pulled it off - he absolutely nailed it.

When the brass bed with zebra-striped sheets came down from the sky, I was laughing so hard...just thinking about it makes me die laughing. Just a fantastic show, in every-which way.

As for Tenacious D, their best material is just the 2-guys-with-acoustic-guitars stuff they do, which is often hilarious, while still being musically proficient. Check out some youtube stuff, you may be impressed.

Also, for Sasquatch, I've seen Feist live, and she's outstanding.

Would have seen the Shins live, but my buddy's girlfriend was feeling sick, I was the ride, so we left the Commodore (Chutes Too Narrow, 1st tour). At least I got to discover Fiery Furnaces before leaving.

And The Roots are famous for killin it live.

Could be for the best that you never saw The Shins. From what I understand, James Mercer (singer), recently "fired" the entire band because of how incompetent they are when it comes to actually playing their instruments. For the most part, The Shins have been songs written by Mercer, and he'd just get his buddies to play the instruments. So for the new album he just got a collection of people who can actually play (including one of Modest Mouse's drummers!) to record and tour.

I think now would be the time to see them, if ever.

Anyway, giving The Walkmen another listen. Good god, this band is so amazing. I can't believe how good Lisbon is.

This may be the song of my adult life

i've been listening to kurt vile a lot lately, loving "smoke ring for my halo" in a big way.

reminds me of chris owens in a lot of ways. weirdo dude with long hair that writes lush classic rock songs with really sincere lyrical stuff going on. vile has a way better voice though.

That album didn't do much for me on the first couple listens, but it has grown on me a LOT.

the new Sleigh Bells leaked, and i like it a lot!

i think if you liked Treats, you're basically guaranteed to like this one. if you didn't like Treats, there's still a chance you'll like this one. it's less in-your-face, more melodic, more structurally complex and more diverse.

still, i think a lot of the draw of Treats was that it was really unique; i hadn't really heard anything like it before. this album isn't too big of a departure from the style of Treats, so it definitely won't get as much buzz and recognition. some people might find it redundant or boring.

so far i'd give it like a 7/10

I loved Treats, but I found it didn't have a lot of staying power. It's hard to go back to it. So I'm not sure how this one will sit with me.

Lisbon is the shiznit. Angela Surf City gives me chills.

Although nothing has been announced, I'm hoping for a new Vampire Weekend later this year. Can't get enough of those guys!

the Bonnaroo lineup has some amazing stuff, and then some really terrible stuff.

i'm not sure if i'll go again this year. i'd love to see radiohead, bon iver, the antlers, rhcp, st. vincent, the beach boys, flying lotus, phantogram, kurt vile, tune yards, and some other stuff on there.

on the other hand, there's a lot of boring jam band stuff, and i don't want to support skrillex, childish gambino, mac miller, two door cinema club, alice cooper, etc.

Since this year is starting off super, super slow, I've been listening to a lot of great stuff from the last few years, and Chad Vangaalen really, really stands out.

If I had to go back and re-work my best of the year list, I'd definitely slot his Diaper Island in my top 5.

Deserves more recognition, what with being a Canadian kid and all.

It's like shoegaze folk music, if such a thing exists.

of all the festivals so far this year, I think Bonaroo beats them all

Radiohead, The Shins, The Beach Boys (they sounded pretty good at the grammys), Bon Iver, Kurt Vile, War on Drugs are all bands I'd like to see

Bad Brains could be interesting too, in a festival setting

How is tennessee? Probably strange of me to say, but I've always wanted to pass through those southern states and just see how people live in small town southern america

Did you do any sight seeing (if such a thing exists there), or did you just go for the concert and split?

i went with my girlfriend, we spent like 2 weeks in Tennassee. we flew into Nashville, spent like 3 days there, drove to Manchester for Bonnaroo, and then drove to Memphis and hung out there for like a week.

it was crazy, it was around 35-40 degrees the entire time we were there. like 80% of the population of memphis is black. we visited the Gibson guitar factory, did the whole Graceland thing, checked out the national civil rights museum, ate at tons of super interesting restaurants and spent a lot of time just walking around, along the mississippi and stuff.

the people were all really friendly and i ended up getting in some weird situations like jamming on drums with a band that was playing a street-side concert. also, the stanley cup finals were going on at the time, so it was hilarious watching canuck games in bars in Memphis.

it was a weird trip to take, but it was all so strange and interesting, i'm really glad we did it.

Not 2012 related but this probably as a good a place as any.

I've never been a big radiohead fan even though I listen to a lot of similar music, mostly because I'm not familiar with their a lot of their stuff and never know where to begin. I am of course familiar with most of their hits (though I didn't always know who they were by) and have made past attempts to listen to more than just their singles.

I love Karma Police, and a while ago I decided i'd download OK Computer as my first full album to listen to. Long story short I didn't listen to it much, the few songs I did listen to didn't really appeal to me, some were pretty weird (not usually a deal breaker for me) so I kind of dropped listening to RH. Though as i'd hear their songs on the radio or other places I always enjoy them and knew that there had to be more of their music that I would enjoy, but again never know where to start and OK Computer didn't seem like a great place.

Then this morning my clock radio went off with High and Dry playing and I had it stuck in my head all day. I've of course heard this song many times before (though I didn't realize it was RH till a few months ago). So I decided I would give RH another shot and I downloaded The Bends today.

I gotta say it is great! It's been a long time since i've listened to an album the whole way through for the first time and liked every song. Usually there will be a handful that stand out and the rest will seem neither good nor bad, and over time I will grow to like the whole album. This is the way it's gone for a lot of my favourite albums, but again it has been a long time since i've come across an album with such immediate appeal.

So basically I want to know, for big Radiohead fans how does this album compare to their others in your opinion, and where should I go once i've thoroughly enjoyed this one?

^ i'm a radiohead FANATIC. they are and always will be my favourite band.

The Bends is my second least favourite Radiohead album. that isn't to say i don't like it, some of the songs (street spirit, fake plastic trees, bones, planet telex) are amongst my favourite radiohead songs. it's just that i think all of their other albums (except Pablo Honey, which is crap) are way way better.

but, like you, The Bends was the first Radiohead album i got into. so keep going in chronological order, it's exciting!

after The Bends comes Ok Computer, one of the most acclaimed albums of all time. it's got a lot of their biggest songs like Karma Police and Paranoid Android. it takes the alternative guitar rock vibe of The Bends and throws in some electronic elements, some more interesting song structures and themes, some really creepy and disturbing bits (climbing up the walls, fitter happier) and is kinda considered a concept album because all the songs kinda have related themes about technology and feeling alone and stuff. if you liked the bends, you'll LOVE Ok Computer. Paranoid Android and Exit Music especially are masterpieces.

the next album is Kid A which is where things get weird. a lot of the songs have heavy heavy vocal effects and there aren't many guitars or acoustic drums. Kid A is also considered one of the greatest albums of all time by some people. thom yorke was really depressed during the recordings, and it took like a year for them to record it. you might not like it, a lot of people got turned off of radiohead by it. i think it's amazing, one of the most interesting and refreshing albums of all time. all of the songs flow into each other, and listening to it is definitely an experience.

Amnesiac is kinda like Kid A except even weirder, with some really jazzy stuff and a song that sounds backwards. it's a pretty dark album and it kinda bums me out, but it might also be my favourite.

Hail to the Thief might be the most similar to The Bends in some regards, so if you don't like Ok Computer, it might be the best album to check out next. it was recorded really fast (like 3 weeks) and isn't too cohesive or anything, just a mix of a bunch of songs. some of it is slow and acoustic, some of it is really electronic, and quite a bit of it is really dark and creepy (check out Wolf At the Door)

In Rainbows is where radiohead started focusing on sounding really beautiful. most of the vocals and guitar parts are drenched in reverbs and delay, and the songs all just sound really pretty and perfect. In Rainbows is probably the most pleasant album to listen to, and i can't imagine anyone ever not liking it, unless they thought it was boring which i could see.

and then there's The King of Limbs which came out a few months ago. it took me a long time to warm up to it, but it's also great. thom yorke is really into hip hop and electronic music now, and that shines through a lot, but there are some nice piano ballads and stuff. basically if you've made it this far into the discography, you're probably going to like this album.

i don't know why i wrote so much haha. i read this quote once about how "writing about music makes as much sense as dancing about architecture," which i agree with. anyway, i hope some of that made sense and helps you get into radiohead.

Saw Bad Brains at the Commodore about 7 years back. Even though I'm not much of a fan, it was an AWESOME show.

Just the idea of dreadlocked Jamaicans going from reggae to hardcore punk between songs (or even, within the same song!) is gold.

I first heard Grimes on Radio 3, but never really gave her much of a listen, as it's not really my style. Even after the Best New Music p4k review, I can't be bothered.

However, she is Canadian, and this song is seriously good. So maybe I should re-consider.

Love when that beat kicks in.
