Tracklist: A Clockwork Lana Del Rey


>> Watch These Videos: Awkwafina, "Queef." If it doesn't pan out for Awkwafina in the rap game, she most-assuredly has a very bright future at Funny or Die. Okay, next up is a Hoboken holiday funtimes animated video for Yo La Tengo's "Toymageddon." Second to last but not least is an iTunes trailer for Artifact, an already-award-winning documentary about the Jared Leto experience 30 Seconds to Mars. OOF. Finally, and speaking of goofy names, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart made a 90's tv show equivalent of The Strokes' video for "Last Night" for "Belong."

>> Lana Del Rey really just wanted us all to be together so she could visually close out a chapter before she releases her new record, Ultraviolence.

>> Grantland's Wesley Morris on R. Kelly's Black Panties: "These are growlingly, mellifluously, purringly sung serenades over mid-tempo, quiet-storm beats. And the woman in his bed - or on his floor, his car hood, or kitchen sink - is neither object nor mere penis receptacle. She is something to live for, something to do, something that, like Kelly himself, needs to be done." Hmmm. Further reading: Timeline: The life and career of R. Kelly

>> Full Stream Ahead: Widowspeak, The Swamps, Brendan Benson, You Were Right, and I Heard the Angels Singing: Electrifying Black Gospel From the Nashboro Label, 1951-1983.

>> Watch Lee Ranaldo subject his red-headed step-Fender to a brutal round of enhanced interrogation techniques.
