Flawless and the Machine
Music post! Music post, because I'm exhausted from driving back from West Virginia (but it was mostly downhill, no police, and a nice day) and was rewarded by my deluxe 2 disc edition of "Between Two Lungs" by Florence and the Machine, who coincidentally were on SNL last night. Seriously, she is one of my favorite vocalists, I love everything on this album. It also came with post cards because I preordered!
I put them up decoratively. I really, really like the style of her music, someone once describe it as "Benedictine monks falling down an elevator shaft" but it's much more beautiful too. Her lyrics are also very twisted and dark, but still shining and moving at the same time.
It's so inspirational too, for me. I find myself thinking back to her songs or just listening to them when I write, do work, walk around, etc.
Here's one of my favorite songs by her. The video is also fantastic. I really want to see her live one day. Darnit, why do I not live in the UK D: Sometimes, I wonder.
Who is your favorite music artist?
Also, Yay 100+ followers! When I get back from New York next week, I'll announce the details for my first giveaway, to say thanks to everyone following this mish mash blog ♥
