There's a lot of "guy" talk behind the scenes about Lorde.  Some guys I've talked to think she's scary.  I think she rocks.  So don't be fooled by the fact I played a bit recently of "Lorde Without the Autotuning."  That obviously wasn't her.  THIS, however, is:

No word yet on a Colorado concert date for Lorde yet, although she is lining up some tour dates right now.  Her new album Melodrama drops June 16th.
