Beautiful women and exotic cats, is apparently the theme of this week's Tuesday Double Feature. I don't know that I planed it that way but we'll run with it now.
Lana Del Rey - "Born To Die"
The ache of Lana Del Rey's voice holds a beautiful sorrow. Combined with lush musical arrangements her music has a power and grace that is almost classic in nature. Like old Hollywood with it's lovely facades and dark secrets, Del Rey's music is unforgettable. Having released the Born to Die: The Paradise Edition in November. This deluxe edition collects all of her singles and packages it with originally unreleased material. It's a must have for fans and new converts alike.
Tristan Prettyman - "My Oh My"
The sultry blues of Tristan Prettyman is empowered with her bold vocals and a dynamic beat. Fresh on the heals of her latest release Cedar+Gold, Prettyman is in the midst of a North American tour. She'll blow through Portland in late January with a show at the Doug Fir Lounge on the 26th. I look forward to see how her musical energy translates to the stage.
