Now this time, it's not a song. It's an artist. You know her well.

Lana Del Rey. 

I bought her album, "Born To Die" a while ago. I literally listened to that album for a month. Her lyrics are so deep and pretty depressing. But there's totally feeling there, and thats why I couldn't stop listening to her. There were songs that I didn't like (Diet Mountain Dew, Carmen, National Anthem, Million Dollar Man) but I listened to them anyway. It was like an addiction. Her songs played in my head all day long. 

What brings me to this article is that, I just listened to her new single, "West Coast". Oh my goodness. I'm sucked back in the Del Rey blackhole. I can't really put my finger on it, but there's something about her music as well. It's not all this dance/pop thats out there today. It's almost gangster-grunge-pop. ???

I have no idea. 
But Lana Del Rey is on fire right now.
Damn girl!

This time I actually discovered these guys by myself! Can you believe it? I was driving home from work and listening to the alternative radio station, I know... who listens to the radio anymore, right? Well I do, once and awhile. I get to learn about the awesome new artists that are out there. Sometimes though I do hear the not so good artists...wah wah wahhhh. But I'm glad I did this time though, 'cause then I wouldn't have discovered, Milky Chance.

It's two guys in the band, and they are pretty much, acoustic but also indie. If that gives you a clue. The vocals are so scratchy and rough, but I think it totally works. The music just has a steady electronic beat, with the acoustic guitar strumming over it. It's just really catchy and chilling music. I've been listening to their tracks all week long before I finally got time to sit and write about it!

Take a listen to these songs and hear for yourself!
