in the past week i’ve received two emails telling me about 16 year old New Zealand singer Lorde (thanks Holly and Sarah). this girl is good. and the more i listened to her music the more i thought, damn what was i doing at 16? i was making mixtapes, not music. i wasn’t causing a mini-music revolution in New Zealand. i’m really looking forward to seeing what Lorde will be doing when she’s 21. she also has big lovely hair which i am quite envious of.

enjoy her EP The Love Club below, or at her website or soundcloud, and buy it on iTunes.

    Thanks for this! Royals has been on high rotation on the national youth station in Australia for the past couple of months, and I’ve been looooooving it, but hadn’t quite got around to checking out the rest of her stuff… my lame spotify searches didn’t turn it up. Now I *know* that it’s there I’m ditching classic Bowie for Lorde for a while.
