Don’t let her failed “Saturday Night Live” performances fool you; Lana Del Rey is one to watch in 2012. The singer has been the center of controversy with people questioning her plump lips to her “manufactured” image and history. The hype over Lana Del Rey was overwhelming.

Media outlets like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum and many more pimped her for months only to frantically type hypocritical reviews that tore the album apart. But Lana Del Rey’s sophomore effort, Born To Die (released on Jan. 30) holds its own without their approval.

Unlike other aforementioned outlets that are so transfixed on the persona, this review focuses on the MUSIC and nothing else.

Die Antwoord release a new video for "I Fink U Freeky"

Die Antwoord just released the new video for “I Fink U Freeky,” a week ahead of the release of TEN$ION on February 7th, 2012. By now, Die Antwoord videos should come with a big neon sign that says “WARNING!

Which is to say: this is probably NSFW, and definitely not safe for the easily squeamed.

Watch the video for “I Fink U Freeky”:

Following their album’s Feb. 7th release date, they’ll jump out on a month-long North American tour. That includes an appearance at Noise Pop 2012 in San Francisco, where we picked them as our Wednesday show of choice in our daily guide to the festival.

02/09/12 – Philadelphia, PA – Trocadero Theatre
02/10/12 – Boston, MA –…
