    I'm sure this has been posted already, but she killed it at the VMA's last week and this song has been on high rotation on my ipod ever since

    Mmmmm, I love Florence and the Machine. Her album is just amazing. It's one of the few that I can listen to in its entirety without becoming bored. Rabbit Heart is one of my favourites. Total eargasm at 1:10!



    I posted the one without the video, because it seems as though the version that goes with the clip has bits snipped out of it... No idea why. The album version is better. Also, with this version you can see the amazing lyrics.

    I saw her in Philly this past April, she's amazing live. If it didn't sound like the album, then it sounded better. I can't wait for more from her!

    Here's an elusive song nobody knows, from a David Byrne album she was featured on. Nothing like her album, but an awesome song.

    I discovered Florence and the Machine earlier this year and one of their songs sounds like sex on music! I was like OMG! I love her voice. I forgot I even have it on my RJ profile. cue to 2:10 for the sex-on-music sound.




    All summer, I've also been listening to Dog Days are Over:

    I get the shivers everytime I listen to her. I love her music; her VMA performace (and the choreography) was just the icing on the cake!

    Discovered her a few months ago, too. Definitely love her album. Glad she got some well-deserved exposure at the VMAs. Unlike several other artists, she performed live at the show -- no lip-syncing.

    Love her. I heard that she has a bunch of b-sides out there from singles, etc. Anyone heard them? Are they as good as her album stuff?

    I love that CD - Here Lies Love by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim. There was actually a post about it on RJ a while back.

    Yeah, there's a lot of her stuff you can find on Youtube that's not on her album. The sound quality is not always there, but some of it are pretty great tracks !

    Here's an example of catchy song she did but didn't release :



    She also did some remakes... I love those ones !

    icon_exclaim.gif Addicted to Love



    icon_exclaim.gif Halo (Beyonce) (though she's kinda shaky on the chorus :S )



    icon_exclaim.gif Suspicious Minds



    icon_exclaim.gif Oh Darling ! (The Beatles) <= LOOOVE this one !



    And as a great lover of MGMT, here's her (bad quality, I know) cover of Electric Feel !

    Thanks for posting these guys...I was very impressed by her VMA performance, and after watching these, I went and bought the album. So far, so good!

    Didn't the above video get pulled for containing racist over tones ?

    In any event I think she is amazing and I find her insanely attractive too.

    Don't get all the 'she looks like a bloke' crap that I keep hearing.

    I think the new record is light years better than Lungs. The imaging is better, the songs are more cohesive, layered and bombastic than Lungs. I listen to Ceremonials every day.

    This is one of my favorites, although I love all of her songs.
