Of the sea of remixes of Lana del Rey‘s songs, this is one of our favorites; Clams Casino remixing the hit single “Born To Die”. Their input brings such a different vibe and feel to the song, it really is as good as the original, but of course, different. What do you think? Enjoy!
Nicolas Jaar, the young experimental artist has given much to talk about recently. With a handful of projects, collaborations and outstanding live performances, Nicolas Jaar is one of the musicians that we think will be a strong influence in the years to come. Today, we have his new material, which he quietly released last week. It is probably his most accesible song yet and it’s as addictive as it is sexy. This time around, the vocals are courtesy of Scout LaRue Willis; Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s child and they surprisingly fit the mood of the songperfectly. We hope Jaar continues being as prolific as he is now and such a perfectionist. Enjoy the song.

People over at Yourstru.ly just revealed a video of a live session they did with Grimes. The sublime “Genesis” is taken from her upcoming album Visions and it’s a pleasure to listen to. The performance is also pretty good. Although there’s not much going on in the video, it still manages to hypnotize and keep your attention. A lovely tune to start the weekend off right.

Molly Nilsson‘s latest album History came out the third week of December. One of the worst weeks for an album to come out because everyone is busy checking out the year-end lists and no one is paying much attention to new stuff, but instead, looking back and trying to remember everything they have listened in the past year (also, because it’s Christmas time). Anyways, Molly Nilsson‘s album is a synth-pop odyssey that is very much worthwhile. Please check out the album opener “In Real Life” to find out what your iTunes has been missing out on. I hope this album gets more attention in 2012.
This song came out towards the end of 2011 and we fell in love with it. Although Julia Holter‘s latest album Tragedy is mesmerizing, “Marienbad” is exceptional and stands out from all of her previous work. This song is more accesible, while staying true to Holter’s experimental approach. The video is truly unconventional. It is the live recording of the images of two 8mm and one 35mm projectors projecting on the same wall running their corresponding film simultaneously. The projected film was processed by hand and is unedited. Somehow, this all fits with Holter’s song. It feels real and at the same time, dreamy.
It has only been a few months ago since , the self described “Gangsta Nancy Sinatra” aka Lana Del Rey, came into the public eye sporting a sexy vintage look and vocals comparable to Fiona Apple; but it was not until she put out “Videogames” that sent her into mainstream.
But why is Lana Del Rey a possible big one for this upcoming year?
With a single already out “Blue Jeans” and an album warming up in the oven for a January 27 release, Lana Del Rey captured the public’s attention with her single “Video Games” a macabre love song where not only her hybrid vocals of Nancy Sinatra and Fiona Apple managed to hypnotize and captivate people all around the globe, but also the accompanying video that showed her strange beauty , vintage footage and paparazzi craze, helped this lady to bring the spotlight to her persona.
Today, Lana has already put out, yet another somber and fascinating single from her upcoming debut album “Born to Die” which goes by the same name , a passionate and morbid love ballad, proves that the vintage obsessed singer is here to stay. “Born to Die” is out this month on the 27, and with influences ranging from Kurt Cobain, to Elvis and Britney Spears , this ought to be an interesting album to hear.
Plus her first single “Video Games”
