Redcat commented on Ology's Battle Of The Fans: '80s Semi-Finals (Duran Duran Vs. Depeche Mode):
“Duran Duran. They've done New Romantic to funk to house, done them well, and combined them in interesting ways.”

Nell commented on Ology's Battle Of The Fans: '80s Semi-Finals (Duran Duran Vs. Depeche Mode):
“Duran Duran. I'm a fan of both, and have seen both perform, but it was hearing The Chauffeur live that really showed me how much a piece of music can do emotionally even when the lyrics are somewhat abstract.”
When she's not busy taking photographs with trailer trash or hanging out with tigers, Lana Del Rey has been doing her best to saturate the internet with new music. The "Video Games" singer is already 2012's "This is the next big thing and you will be interested in her whether you like it or not!" new artist with only two singles and the aforementioned internet leaks to her credit. Shrug, love her or hate her, at least there's no shortage of new Lana Del Rey music at your disposal, right?
Another new LDR song, the oddly titled "YAYO", made its unheralded debut on YouTube late last week. Take a listen:
It's got plenty of vibe to spare... and as always, I'm a sucker for a weepy string arrangement... but her vocals sound SOOOOOO forcedly wispy, it's almost laughable. "Let me put on a show for you, daddy"? Yeah, no thanks. Hard as I try, what little enjoyment I get from her music is squelched, stomped, and scourged by: 1.) Her ridiculous appearance, 2.) Her faker-than-faker, beyond-pretentious embrace of trashiness as irony, and 3.) Despite my indifference, here I am, writing coverage on her... yet again.
