My favorite red-headed Angel/Queen/King, Florence Welch, and her + Machine, performed on Fallon last night. While I missed it live sad drinking Bud Lights with my pal ZZ after the C's ripped my heart out, thanks to the Youtube machine, I can soak in her aura virtually.
If you've ever needed proof that the Billboard charts don't determine good music, look no further than Florence + the Machine. Did you know they are technically one hit wonders? FATM has one U.S. Top 40 hit: Dog Days peaked at #21.
There isn't a better raw voice in music. I love Florence, especially upbeat Flo. So pumped for Dance Fever. I can get down with some of the sad, churchy stuff, but to me, Florence is at her best with some pep---songs like "Delilah" and "Ship to Wreck". Just look at her flowing with grace and power in all that red lace. She might not know where to put her love, but if she's looking for a place, the Doz man volunteers as tribute. I cannot wait to see her + the Machine for a third/second and a half time this fall.
