Whistle while we work!

11 Oct

There’s nothing like a good tune to make your day go faster and here at Stumpet towers we love beavering away to cool, retro influenced ditties. Sometimes we’re in a camp, Puppini Sisters type mood or we sew the day away to the easy country of K D Lang and Glen Campbell (with a bit of Dolly P thrown in for good measure!) but we are big fans of Americana tinged pop – the Chris Isaacs style stuff of David Lynch movies – and recently came across the very fabulous Lana Del Rey. She has a haunting, melancholic voice with a dark edge; sultry, lo-fi arrangements and glorious late 50’s early 60’s trailer trash style. She currently puts together her own videos – footage of herself cut with vintage, Kodachrome colour footage…trés chic! Catch her on Jools Holland tonight at 10pm on BBC2.
