I used to religiously listen to Lana. As in like, I didn’t hear any music that wasn’t Lana for 3 years straight from the age of 12 to the age of 15. Which is kind of embarrassing but a universal experience I believe.
I didn’t listen to her really at all in 2020, however still kept up with her because I was a massive fan (just took a break after QFTC lol don’t ask me why I was a 15 year old twitter loser who couldn’t think for himself despite literally being a huge fan of her for years already)
I then would listen to her discography heavily in rotation for months at a time. However, my music taste has EXPLODED in the last 6 months and I find myself not really going back to Lana’s entire discography all at once much anymore.
Last week I was listening to Born To Die a lot, and Paradise. A couple weeks before it was Ultraviolence. This week I’ve had the slower tracks on LFL on repeat. I feel like Lana (and my other favourite artists such as Taylor, Gaga etc) have taken a bit of a backseat in my musical journey as I’ve grown up and expanded my tastes a lot I still love their albums so much and they are in my rotation a lot, I just think I have a less ‘chronically online’ approach to music now - I happily wake up every day and listen to a new album I’ve never heard before. It’s been really refreshing.
Unrelated to the Lana aspect, but a few of my favourite albums that I’ve had in rotation as a result of my reduced focus on Lana are Trouble In Paradise by La Roux, Technique by New Order, Exile in Guyville by Liz Phair, A Flock of Seagulls (self titled) and England Made Me by Black Box Recorder
