Listen to Lana Del Rey’s May Jailer ‘Sirens’ Album

No one will dispute the fact that Lana Del Rey has identity issues. The singer, born Elizabeth Grant, traffics in breathy, sex-kitten pop, a chanteuse who cops to being a gangsta Nancy Sinatra in the here and now. But that wasn’t always the case. She tried to find her footing and recorded an album called ‘Sirens,’ which has surfaced online under the May Jailer moniker. It’s folky and fragile, and nothing like the out-there, synthy and sexy tunes on ‘Born to Die.’

On ‘Sirens,’ she’s a Triple AAA, almost granola-style singer, accompanied by acoustic guitar and singing like a little baby bird. It’s no coincidence that there’s a song called ‘Birds of a Feather’ and one titled ‘Aviation.’

Most of the songs have the same pacing, and you can just imagine LDR – oops, we mean May Jailer — cooing them in a coffeehouse in upstate New York. They all sound similar and are certainly not an indication of what was to come once she adopted the Lana Del Rey persona.

If you like acoustic folk with a bit of a modern flair, you might dig these. Check ’em out. And after that, if you still desire more, go here and pick your pleasure.

Then tell us, PopCrush readers, do you prefer LDR to May Jailer or the reverse?
