Digital diva rises to stardom

Lana Del Rey is the biggest name in music right now. But perhaps her rise to fame, more than anyone else's, was as sudden as it was untraditional in the traditional sense of the word.

Simplistic Duplexity (CD) Justin Robinett & Michael Henry

Judging by YouTube comments on this duo, you either love 'em or hate 'em. Common comments range from 'Marry me!' to 'This is obviously auto-tuned'. I find it hard not to love these two creative young musicians.
