Florence + the Machine – Lungs [2009]

December 1, 2009

Album post #15.  Though I am not certain of this, it seems that Florence + the Machine‘s debut album was named for its defining feature – Florence Welch’s voice.  She’s got Lungs.

What separates Florence’s music from other pop singers with strong pipes is the way her songs are arranged.  Rather than making simple music to show off her voice, whoever The Machine is has orchestrated these songs to complement Florence’s voice with the appropriate fullness and subtlety for which each piece demands.

Listen to the whole album on this youtube playlist.  Three of my favorite songs are below: Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up), Howl, and Cosmic Love.  Florence’s voice is breathtaking on Cosmic Love.
