Marc Maron interviewed Lorde on yesterday’s WTF podcast. She struck me as being a pretty cool person with a legit interest in all kinds of music. When she and Marc discovered a mutual love of Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac, I was smiling. It was a genuinely nice moment.
I’m not exactly her target audience but now that I know a little more about her as a person, I appreciate her more as an artist. That happens to me a lot.
These are from her new album Melodrama.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
