Day 2 of 5 of Girl Power Week on DOL. Five straight days of bands led by a strong female lead on vocals. If you're not with it, then don't let the door hit you on the way out.
For April 19th, 2016 I'm going with some Florence + the Machine.
F+M is probably my favorite band with a female lead singer. They're one of my favorite bands in music right now regardless of singer. It's The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons then I think Florence + the Machine. Lot of crap out right now that gets radio play but I stay away and enjoy actual music. You can listen to some rapper gargle, I'll take people with actual talent. I am supposed to see Florence in Mansfield this summer and I cannot wait. I've heard they do a great live show, and I'm sure the crowd in the lawn won't disappoint. Who knows, I'll be down close to 100 by then, maybe I'll meet the future Mrs Dozo. A blogger can dream.
Honestly though, Florence Welch has one of the best voices in all of music, I feel like she is wicked underrated because they aren't really on traditional pop radio, but she has some fucking PIPES. It's going to be so awesome to hear her perform in person. The fact that only one song by them (Dog Days) had reached the Top 40 in the US is a joke. Just shows how big of a joke the charts can be.
I love so many songs by this group but went with their current single "Delilah" off of their album "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" as the song of the day for April 19th. One of the best songs of the album, just some free advertising, NBD, I don't mind.
But because it's a special week with a theme on DozOnLife AND because I love Florence + the Machine so much AND because it's Tuesday (double shot Tuesday S/O HJY even though I never listen to it) I'm gonna do a special double shot with a second Florence + the Machine song. My personal all time favorite, "No Light, No Light". "You can't chose what stays and what fades away" is one of the my all time favorite lyrics. I can't say enough good things about Florence Welch and her voice.
