Music Spotlight: Florence and The Machine



Florence and The Machine have pretty much been on repeat for the last couple of weeks around here.. Especially the album "Ceremonials" .. I feel something very mysterious and magical when I listen these songs. My favorites have always been "Cosmic Love" and "Shake It Out" .. and now I'm adding "Only If For a Night" to the list.. here's some lyrics from the song:


"Then I heard your voice as clear as day, 
And you told me I should concentrate, 
It was all so strange, 
And so surreal, 
That a ghost should be so practical. 

Only if for a night 
And the only solution was to stand and fight, 
And my body was loosened and 
I was set alight, 
But you came over me like some holy rite, 
And although I was burning, 
You're the only light."


They'll be playing near me in September this year and also at Austin City Limits. Hope I get to see a live show!

  1. Uberweird! I finally pulled my Rammstein CD out of my car a few days ago and replaced it with Florence & The Machine. (Yeah, CD's. I'm oldschool.)

    She/they was/were here not too long ago. I realized it the day of her/their concert and only a few days after I bought Ceremonials (on compact disc!) on a whim and started to really enjoy her/their music. It was a weeknight, and I had work to do, so I couldn't go on such short notice. I just realized today that she'll be back through here in a few months. I'm tempted to go, but I don't care much for the venue.

  2. I missed her/them when they were in my area. Amazing.
