"Brooklyn Baby" by Lana Del Rey

Track Tuesday

Sarah Ruby



Summer Fridays have officially been instated, and what better way to usher in the sticky, sweaty season than with the ultimate summer soundtrack: Lana Del Rey’s latest LP, Ultraviolence. We’ve been waiting for this moment since we got the first taste of her single, West Coast, back at Coachella. Del Rey’s usual sounds of Americana nostalgia, fragile lyrics, and wispy vocals are in full force, this time, joined by the rock ‘n’ roll aesthetics of Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach. The result is a subdued compilation of slow jam ballads, signature to the sultry singer. Bask in the 51 minute-long sonic dreamscape that is Ultraviolence. Picture yourself cruising down Ocean Parkway, top down, LDR turned up on the speakers. Rinse and repeat every weekend for the rest of the summer.
