    Idk life lessons because I listened to it once, but Hollywood Bowl was one of my top Lana songs last year so :hide:


    gonna go against the grain and say I’d love another Hollywood Bowl. Insanely catchy melody, and I don’t know, the lyrics seem kinda deep to me. Like not every line is a thought provoking line, but the whole second verse 


    “I've got a swimming pool, I like to float on the surface
    And think of the stories I've already sold
    I've got a feeling, I've got a memory
    Why wait for Heaven when I can have Heaven right here like I'm told?“


    is absolutely beautiful. Idk I would absolutely love more breezy songs like it 

    I’m also in the Hollywood Bowl hive! I love the production on it too - that quiet strings melody before the second pre-chorus always gets me and I like the fiddle too. I think it’s a really beautiful song

    "That boygenius shit isn't better than any fucking Lana Del Rey that's rapping today, you know?" Banks said. "When they give those awards out -- because the Grammys are supposed to be accolades of artistic excellence, you know what I mean? boygenius is not excellent. [...] When they give these Grammys out, all it says to boygenius is: 'Oh yeah, you're great, you're amazing, you can do whatever you put your mind to.' And it says to Lana Del Rey: 'You don't have shit. You don't own shit, not even the shit you created for yourself,' and it makes me upset."

    What is this from?

  3. As soon as I saw that video of Lana in the studio with Jack at the piano I knew it would cause a nuclear meltdown on LB :facepalm:


    I don't have a specific vision for what I want from Lana's next album, to be honest. I know a lot of people hold up UV and HM as standards but I think it's a mistake for any artist to try to recapture magic in a bottle. I'm betting if she tried to do a UV or HM redux it would sound tired and people here would be unhappy. I'm interested in what direction she's going to go next. She seems a little surprised by all of the love she's been getting on this festival tour, and it seems she is maybe a little surprised by the positive reception OB got. I'm curious to see how that will affect the kind of work she's doing - if it will affect the work at all.


    Drew Erickson and Zach Dawes are great and I do hope she continues to work with them. I've loved the work they've done with Angel Olsen, Weyes Blood, etc., and I think they've been great for Lana. Of course I love her work with Jack and I really think she has unlocked new levels and depths to her songwriting with him so I'm happy their creative spark hasn't died yet. 


    I'm cautiously optimistic about Jon Batiste - the interlude and Candy Necklace are great, but I found Life Lessons to be one of the weakest songs she's been a part of in a while. It ended up going on his record, not hers, and a part of me thinks maybe she knows it's not really up to par with the rest of OB. 


    I'd love for Rick Nowels to work with her again if she feels he's creatively still up to snuff with her present vision.

  4. I haven't watched the show in full but from the individual songs I've seen, I'm loving how much fun she seems to be having. I know she's still really nervous, and you can tell it, but she seems to be really feeling the music and I like the little facial expressions she did. I hope as she does more of these shows this summer she gets even more comfortable. Can't wait to see her in London and at Outside Lands.
