    So I'm really digging this girl. Hard to believe she is only 16.







    The production is great.

    she's actually pretty awesome. I'll admit that one track she has that I could only assume is called Royal is catchy as fuck.

    I'm living in Australia right now and she is getting a good amount of airplay here. Frank Ocean dropped out of a festival here last weekend and they replaced him with her.

    Wow, did not realize she's only 16. I've been loving that song lately. It's been getting a lot of airplay in Minneapolis as well, oddly enough.

    Has she proved herself live yet? What makes you think she'd handle a festival crowd well at all?

    She sold out the Echoplex in under 2 mins for her 8/8 show. Supposedly coming back to LA again in October. She looks to be the real deal.

    She sounds pretty good on the live stream I posted. It's from an Australian festival called Splendour in the Grass.

    I like the song Bravado a lot and The Love Club is pretty good as well. Both are off her EP.

    Her Kindness cover makes the song a lot darker too.

    Her EP?

    Actually the Kindness song is in itself a cover song... "Swingin Party" is originally by The Replacements...

    "Lorde's first single, "Royals," has notched its sixth straight week at the top of Billboard's alternative chart, making for the longest run at the top for any female artist in history.The previous record-holder was Alanis Morissette, who enjoyed a five-week run in 1995 with "You Oughta Know." The song is also the first by a female artist to hit the top of the chart in 17 years. "

    Yeah, id say so.

    Did you miss Major Lazer or Gotye? Not being able to distinguish dream from reality might get you into some trouble some day.

    Enjoyed the show tonight. Played for longer than I expected. A lot of tunes that were not on the EP's.

    Major Lazer full to capacity and beyond? Making it nearly impossible to cross over to the Sahara because of the huge motherfucking massive crowd of people stretching backward from the tent?

    Gotye playing Someone I used to know and everyone in the tent turning to exit hearing the only song the cared about?

    I see why you mention Gotye but no clue why you'd mention Major Lazer's massively overflowing crowd.
