Florence & The Machine, Discusion Thread.
Really surprised there isn't a thread about these guys!!! I done my best to search for one but couldn't find any, sorry again if there is one out there,

I first seen Florence and the Machine on the telly at Glastonbury, and was instantly blown away!!! Phenomenal performance! still haven't seen them live myself, can't wait to tho, everything I've heard has been extremely positive!

There debut album "Lungs" is one of the best debut albums I've ever heard!! Great from start to finish!!!

Whats the thoughts on Florence & the Machine here???

wrong forum, bang & clatter mate.

people have been talking about them but just not to a great extent i suppose.

i have the album but haven't listened to it yet.

It got a bunch of mentions in the "best music of 2009" thread, or whatever it's called. It's a good album - I just finally heard it a few weeks ago.

u2popmofo 01-04-2010 12:20 AM

It's + people, not &. +!

Saracene 01-04-2010 03:08 AM

Actually, wikipedia spells it as Florence and the Machine (alternatively Florence + the Machine) :tongue:

I love the album, going to see them live in a couple of months :hyper: Although I feel weird saying "them" when it's really all about Florence Welch.

I enjoyed a lot their debut album. It's one of the best last debut suprises.

"Kiss With A Fist" is a cool song. That British accent isn't hidden at all, and I like that.

That's about all I have to add.

cruzila 01-04-2010 10:35 AM

Kiss with a Fist is the only song i've heard thus far, but definitely want to check out all of Lungs!

Screwtape2 01-04-2010 07:18 PM

Lungs is probably the album of the past year that had the most hidden gems. Blinding, Cosmic Love, Between Two Lungs and Hurricane Drunk all deserve to get the recognition that Kiss With A Fist and Rabbit Heart have. :up:

Ronnie269 01-13-2010 09:23 AM

Damn :doh: , I thought I got the thread right this time! sorry.

Yeah Kiss With a Fist is a great tune, the rest of the album kinda takes a different direction tho, very consistent and great throughout, Kinda like a more poppy Arcade Fire,

The album is well worth checking out,

I think "I'm Not Calling You a Liar" and "Howl" are also hidden gems,

Does the + thing really matter? :D

u2popmofo 01-13-2010 10:24 AM

Using a + in a band name is awesome, so yes, it matters.


Ronnie269 01-13-2010 11:41 AM

Okay, cool, I'll go with it, :D

Yep. That and Rabbit Heart are pretty superb. I mostly listen to the album just to hear Florence sing; the music is incidental.

mmm. she blew me away with those first two tracks.

she is one of the (many) singers on the upcoming Bryne/Fatboy Slim collaboration.

Saracene 01-14-2010 04:03 PM

Nova station here played You've Got the Love yesterday. I love the cover but it's not like the album is lacking amazing original songs... still it was pleasing to hear Florence on the radio :up:

MadForIt 01-14-2010 05:04 PM

she is awesome
and quite hot

corianderstem 01-28-2010 12:21 PM

Just found out they're playing in Seattle in April. Yay!

u2popmofo 01-28-2010 12:22 PM

I need to listen to this album more.
