Music Muse: Florence And The Machine

19 Dec

So I was gifted the Florence And The Machine album, “Ceremonials,” and I haven’t stopped playing it.

Mary Leontine Welch’s vocal spectrum is astounding, and her sound stretches over emotional boundaries, eloquent sounds, and subtle rhythms. The album is quite beautiful, and I recommend it for anyone who liked “The Dog Days Are Over” or bands like Mumford and Sons or Gotye. 220px-Ceremonials

Personally, I loved “Seven Devils” and “Lover to Lover” the most.

    I discovered Florence and the Machine through Spotify and am thankful. I am also always looking for a novel (I drift toward non-fiction) and palatable poetry (yes, that is the definition of subjective) so I look forward to your suggestions.

    I absolutely love Florence and the Machine- I played her music while writing most of my first novel, she’s definitely an inspiration!

    The song Shake it out always gets me to thinking about what I’ve done with my life and all my secrets

    Those are two of my favorite songs by her! Breath of Life (which is not on that album), Never Let Me Go, No Light No Light, and Spectrum are also really good 😀

    Florence is well liked over here in the UK – headlining many festivals. I was actually a little disappointed with this album (although i did really like Shake it Out). I’d have to say i prefer her first album Lungs.
