A grammy for Lorde

January 27th, 2014 at 4:31 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

has won her first Grammy, winning the award for best pop solo performance, but has missed out on the award for best pop vocal album.

She is up for four awards tonight, with two more still to come. The best pop vocal album award went to Bruno Mars and his album Unorthodox Jukebox.

Very cool. A year ago she was almost unknown.

UPDATE: And that’s two – Song of the Year also.

    Yes, as cringe worthy as that wall to wall “she’s from Nil Zild you know” coverage will be at least it will bump Cuntliffe off the top story on the news…ha ha ha.

    It’s a win for Auckland even if you couldn’t give a rat’s ass. Now get out there and enjoy your anniversary.

  20. Nostradamus (2,758 comments) says:

    It’s interesting to compare Cunliffe and Lorde (the two big stories of the day).

    let’s start with Cunliffe:

    Three weeks ago I stood on top of a 1200-metre peak on the edge of Kahurangi National Park with my 12-year-old son.

    It was a six-hour slog to the summit, and worth every minute: the sense of achievement, the amazing outlook over Golden Bay.

    I felt then what I feel now: I am proud to be a New Zealander.

    And now Lorde:

    Lorde praised her co-writer and producer Joel Little for her success, saying she wouldn’t be on stage accepting awards if it wasn’t for him.

    “This guy’s nurtured me through kind of my first years of song-writing, which I will forever owe him,” she said.

    Earlier, for her first award win, Lorde took to the stage sounding nervous, opening with a shy “hello”.

    “This is the one thing I didn’t expect the most tonight,” she said before paying tribute to her fellow nominees. She didn’t thank anyone else — perhaps indicating she was hoping to thank more later.

    Let’s play spot the real down-to-earth NZer. And it’s not Cunliffe!

    Meanwhile, somewhere in Herne Bay, Cunliffe was spotted updating his CV to say he helped with the formation of Lorde’s career! :)

    Re RRM at 5.15.

    No RRM, I’m not stuck in the wilds of the South island. I took the ‘Akaroa’ tag when i lived on a street of that name in Miramar in Wellington back in the day. I now live in go-ahead, up-to-the-minute, swinging Auckland, – (Woo-Hoo!!) – but the street name doesn’t lend itself to email usage like Akaroa does.

    There comes a point where musicians aren’t in their prime anymore. I guess the inventiveness of youth has passed. Look at Sting, Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, Clapton, even the last Joni Mitchell album. Not that great.

    Boston has a new album out too (check Spotify) which is supposed to be a return to form of sorts, but I didn’t think much of it.

    My advice to Lorde is to get out, get out now. Leave NZ and live somewhere where you are not going to have provincial hicks try and claim ownership of you. And then make awesome music.

    I think few on this blog are actually ‘gushing’ over her music, are they? Her music isn’t my cup of tea either, fwiw. Seems to me that most are simply happy to acknowledge and praise a young NZ woman for her success this year in a very competitive, global industry. I don’t see a problem with that. Will it stand the test of time – who knows, I didn’t imagine ABBA to have had the legs that it has.

    Of course it wont last for long, but that’s the scene today really really disposable. Just finished Neil Young’s ” Waging Heavy Peace” autobiography, apart from being a fucking amazing book, he has a lot to say about the state of the music scene today. His big bitch is about the quality of sound that is being foisted on the public with MP3′s.

    And someone is calling my name
    From the back of the restaurant
    And someone is playing a game
    In the house that I grew up in

    I could swear that I’ve heard that before in some song from the 1980s, even with the same effect applied to the voice. If not the same, then very like it. It’s been bugging me for a long time :(

    Meanwhile back on subject, Lorde’s win is a fabulous achievement for this young lady who proves to all in tinsel town that you don’t have to get your boobs out and “twerk” your ass to get noticed. Her originality is the key to her success and she will go on to enjoy a long career in the music business as an indie pop icon.
    As much as I enjoyed music from the 70′s and 80′s I nevertheless listen to new pop and rock because music is always evolving, and artists such as Lorde bring a new exciting and innovative perspective to an industry that manufactures idols.

    She is a “rich bitch” now so she will be firmly in the sights of Labour and the Greens. They will teach her a lesson and tax her into “equality”.

    Well… unless she gets knocked up, then she will get given money because she is a victim ! Confused ? So are they.

    Fucking embarrassing. Give it a break NZ you pathetic little country..
