Good new music is kind of like a drug to me. Once I find something I like, I will listen to it over and over again and essentially gorge myself on it. I become a woman obsessed.
My current musical obsession is the debut album from Florence and the Machine, Lungs. It’s amazing. I’m trying to find the words to describe why it is so amazing, and I’m coming up short. I’m even having a difficult time trying to classify what kind of music it is – indie, certainly, but she’s got some incredible soul and rhythm going on. The best I can do to help explain is reiterate what I read on her website. She said she does a lot of songwriting when she’s either drunk or hungover, because it’s when she’s feeling the most passionate. Which is what I think I’m responding to in her music, that level of passion. At any rate, I highly recommend checking it out. There might be a little something in there for everyone.
