Lana Del Rey @ L'Album de la Semaine, Paris Nov 23 2011

Lana Del Rey @ L'Album de la Semaine, Paris Nov 23 2011, 3:00 PM
New American Pop sensation Lana Del Rey is (still) doing promo for her album to be out next year.
We already saw her performing one song when we went to Taratata tv show to see Lou Reed/ Metallica.We liked what we saw.
This time she's playing a "real" show in front of an audience of 200 people at the Studio 104 of la Plaine St Denis just outside Paris for Canal+ tv show "L'Album de la Semaine".
She's playing with the band she's been performing with for her last proper shows in Paris @ Nouveau Casino & @ Silencio Club this month: 3 black musicians (for the groove) on drums, bass & keys plus a white guy on guitar.
High heels, stunning dress, red hair, great actress poses, sulky attitude and always a smile in the end: that's Lana Del Rey.
She also has some really cool & laid-back songs and great voice to go with, sometimes low à la Nico, sometimes higher à la Kate Bush.
On a couple of songs you can feel a tiny Hip Hop influence but most of the songs are atmospheric, like a soundtrack to a David Lynch movie
8 songs 35 min set plus an encore with 2 songs that she already performed but this time with just a piano ( and a bit of guitar).
45 min set in all.

Despite all the gossips going on about her being manufactured, there's a great talent.

We met her after the show and she was VERY nice & Chatty with everyone, signing stuff and posing for photos with always a kind word and a smile.

Ana played another private show at a Nokia party on Nov 24 2011
