I heard Shake It Out at a restaurant today... and, well, shook it out. Love that song.

If Florence tours in America I will be a very happy woman!

Pretty large venues she'll be playing in. Then again, her popularity has risen tremendously. I hope to see her in concert again in the future (opening for U2 didn't do much justice, though she was a really great opening act).

Wow Rod Laver Arena? I've seen her at the tiny little Palace only a couple of years ago. I'll definitely be there!

I never heard much of a weigh in on the new album, are people liking it? What say you, Interference team? How does it compare to the last? i haven't heard it yet.

I'd put it just about on par with Lungs in terms of songcraft. Lungs is considerably more diverse, though, so how you rank the two will probably depend on whether you prefer eclectic albums or more cohesive ones.

That sounds right. I found Lungs to be very strange with its incohesiveness- none of the songs really fit well into each other. I haven't heard Ceremonials yet but if it maintains a similar sound throghout I probably will like it more.

I wouldn't necessarily say that I prefer eclectic albums to cohesive ones, but I just think that some artists/bands have a sound that can really overstay its welcome unless they throw in some diversity. And I'd put Florence in that group.

< to my ears, Ceremonials is a definitely the more subtle of the two albums ~ Lungs literally punched me in the face and threw me against a wall and when I came up for air it was unashamedly . . . Ceremonials is more of a slow burn and it has absolutely crept in under my skin ~ tis like a new lover; just can not get enough of it

I FINALLY listened to the album. I hadn't even heard a full song off it - I heard part of What the Water Gave Me a few times.

Upon first listen, I liked it a lot. Definitely looking forward to spending more time with it.

Well done!

By the time I got home no standing tickets were available and the seats were pretty ordinary. I'll keep checking back until the presales close, but I may have to try my luck in the public sale on Wednesday.

Got tickets for my Mum and I for Florence's Melbourne show I'd have preferred GA, but our seats are quite close and there's no way my Mum is joining me and screaming teenagers in GA.

Wow she has really shot up in popularity, hey. She was here in August last year but I saw BSS that night for $20 less. Wonderful decision. I might go.
