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 ♥

  2. That is a really neat idea for decoration. I've seen it done with vinyl albums before, but it never occurred to me to try it with CDs!

    My favorite artist right now is a band, actually. Well. A few. I'm in love with Kamelot, Epica and Orphaned Land lately.

  3. Doesn't she ever come to the US for concerts?

    As for current favorite bands, I've gotten rehooked on ELO and Rush. I still really like Counting Crows and the Gorillaz, but the latest albums from both bands just didn't match up with previous work...

  7. Florence is pretty cool! You should look up some more of her live performances.

    I can't really decide on my favourite artist! Some bands on regular rotation though are Tool, Queens of the Stone Age and Frenzal Rhomb.

  13. Florence is just beyond fab<3 My favourite song of theirs is, undoubtedly, Cosmic Love :D Are they new enough in the states? They've been around longer I think over this side of the Atlantic :)
    Arcade Fire are my other favourite band <3
