Well, I've just bought the album "Lungs", and I think it's truly amazing! Anyone else heard it?


Here are a few clips.

I'm surprised there is no thread yet for the amazing 'not-really-band' Florence+The Machine.



Florence+The Machine is the recording name of Florence Welch and a collaboration of other artists who provide backing music for her voice. It's music is a mix of alternativ rock/pop/soul/WTF?! XD and the band has received a lot of praise in the music media. Their 'sound' is based on Florence amazing and powerful voice backed up with powerful drums and harp.

Their debut album Lungs was released on July 2009 and held the number 2 position for its first five weeks in the charts, behind Michael Jackson. It was also nominated for a mercury prize.


But one of their most distinctiv characteristic is Florence's presence on stage: very intense and oneiric.


Some songs you might have heard:


Rabbit heart (raise it up)

I think there is a thread for her somewhere...


She is lovely, though! I love her song Drumming :heart:


Haven't find it with the search tool :thinking: If a modo find the old one, he/she could merge it with mine ^^


The drumming song is great, like the clip too:

I'm sorry I just don't get what's so great about Florence and The Machine. She seems to be everywhere at the moment and it's getting on me bloody nerves.


She can't sing and she looks like a man. There I've said it.... :angry: And she's bloody wierd, but not in a good Bjork kind of way. She looks like a f*cking treehugger.




You can throw stuff at me now :P
