Lana Del Rey – Sparkle Jump Queen, No Kung Foo and More May Jailer

Sparkle Rope Queen is a name given to some recordings Lizzy Grant is said to have done in 2008. Below I have added some similar recordings from around that time to make a full imaginary album. Most of them were on A Best of Lana Del Rey Parts 1 or 2 but there is now a full length version of You're Gonna Love Me aka God's Plan as well as a demo version Pawn Shop Blues which I prefer to the produced version on the Lizzy Grant/Nevada album.

At the end is four acoustic demos from the No Kung Fu ep  that has been highlighted on the Moon but not in the A Best Ofs. Bright Lites and Yayo would both appear on the Lizzy Grant/Nevada album, though Bright Lites was turned into a dance track when it sounds more Nirvana inspired in demo form. I think Yayo is one of her finest songs and here it is raw but beautiful. The two exclusive tracks, Jimmy Neco and Get Drunk are both pretty good.

It has been a bit quiet in Lana land for a while but then recently some more May Jailer material has surfaced from around 2005 in two EPs called To the End and Young Like Me.
