Bicycle Blues, Seattle USA

Del Rey's new video is "Bicycle Blues."

Del usually plays acoustic blues and old-time jazz--she's a ukelele maestra--but here she's going for a more rawkus sound, as suits the urgency of her lyrics.

The video shows that Seattle's bike infrastructure is pretty developed--if not its bike culture perhaps.

And here's a video about some people in Guadalajara, Jalisco, who are putting in their own bicycle infrastructure, since they certainly can't expect their government to do anything. Gracias a Brian Jones and for the link.

Del Rey also likes this cycling video. Certainly more than I do.

  1. Sometimes music conveys what words cannot. This song does that with some subtle fun. Thanks for posting it!
