Lana Del Rey: Born to Die
If you can get past the urge to hold a mirror under her nose to determine that she’s still breathing, you’ll find the former Lizzy Grant delivers a stunning debut with fully-flowered orchestration layering the hypnotic title tragic, and so much more. Saturday Night Live detractors be damned, her penetrating lyrics, particularly on “Video Games” and the empowering “This Is What Makes Us Girls,” belie her innocent, soft-linen appearance. Imagine what a couple shots of espresso might do. Polydor (lanadelray.com).
