VIDEO: Sole’s “Another Anti-Capitalist Anthem”

Sole created a new track this week called “Another Anti-Capitalist Anthem”, which comes just as the United States celebrates its independent day. The track was put together not with the 4th in mind, but it was timely so it seems more than fitting. If the instrumental sounds familiar, it’s based on a track by Lana Del Rey. But I don’t like her. Sole, I like.

AUDIO: Silver Swans’ “Video Games”

Lana Del Rey is getting a major push in the promotional department, so you are sure to hear and see her everywhere for the first half of 2012. Can someone do her music one better? Yes.

Silver Swans have recorded a cover of Del Rey’s “Video Games” and personally I think it surpasses what the original attempted to do. It’s an attempt at being sensual around something that technically isn’t, and yet video games are the new seduction, aren’t they? Have a listen.

SOME STUFFS: Lana Del Rey to appear on “Saturday Night Live” in 2012

Lana Del Rey fans take note: you will be seeing one of your favorite singers on the first Saturday Night Live of 2012, specifically on January 12th where actor Daniel Radcliffe will be hosting. Del Rey’s appearance will be to support her album Born To Die, and there are plans for her to go on tour, no dates have been announced as of this writing.

If she performs the title track for the album, let’s hope the “Long Red” interpolation is correct this time.

It’s a song that interpolates Mountain‘s “Long Red” performed at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair, but is Lana Del Rey have what it takes to make the interpolation work for her? Hear it, see it, feel it.

Or something.

BTW – whoever produced this song did the interpolation wrong. What Leslie West is saying is “you got that?”

VIDEO: Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games (Live At The Premises)”

Lana Del Rey has a haunting voice, and maybe that’s a way of saying “she sounds new and now, but it is so unfamiliar to people of this generation, that people are going to think she hangs out in haunted houses and scares people by singing.” I don’t know if the word “chanteuse” is too much, but in this video she comes off that way, where the luxury of hearing her is all yours, and you are willing to bow down and beg for more of the voice that you will eventually crave for life. Del Rey may becoming your life craver, and you can bow, crawl, or roll all you want with the Video Games single, featuring two remixes of the song.
