Florence and The Machine – Lungs (Island, 2009)


Nick: I’ve actually heard of them!

she’s big.

yeah I can see why it’s popular.

easy melodies, danceable rhythms.

but the old story, not enough variety.

and the first number sort of seems to promise variety.

{track 5 – Kiss With A Fist}

oh, that’s different.

she sounds like someone.

who is it?

Speedy Gonzales?

certainly not.

it’s good.

but not great.

you tire of it quite rapidly.

yeah it’s very full on.

too full on.

and I keep expecting it to go somewhere else.

but it doesn’t.

I guess the producer isn’t the most subtle.

three producers.

really? all with the same attitude?

maybe she’s just a natural shouter?

she sounds like someone very well known.

who is it!?

“I want my music to sound like throwing yourself out of a tree, or off a tall building, or as if you’re being sucked down into the ocean and you can’t breathe.”


when she sings rather then yells, she has quite a good voice.

you know who I heard this morning?

Boy George! what’s he up to these days?

you don’t want to know.

On Flo’s website you can find some tantalising recipe ideas with Knorr Ready-to-Serve sauces. Which is great.
