Ultimate test of bass - Lana del Rey's A&W

I've been listening a lot to the excellent new Album from Lana del Rey.  One track really stands out, and that's A&W

Besides its brilliance, the bass in the last two minutes of it is quite staggering.  I mean, even at low volumes whenever I play it I'm half expecting my neighbours to be hammering on my front door.


Try Jean Victor Arthur Guillou's pipe organ arrangement of "Gnomus" from Mussorgsky’s "Pictures At An Exhibition" if you want to test out the bass on your system.

Took some balls for her to step out like that. From mellow melodic to intense out of nowhere.  It’s like a new style that I think works really well.

Try Flight of the Cosmic Hippo by Bela Fleck and the Flectones or Hey Now by London Grammar.

I wonder if Lana uses loops and pro-tools for her recordings?


Happy Listening!
