The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, but for the most part this week’s best singles aren’t the ideal soundtrack for your cookout.

We’ve heard a bunch of songs already: the… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine Return To SNL With A Stool

Florence Welch is still feeling the effects of the foot injury that she incurred at Coachella, so she had to do her second go-around on Saturday Night Live while sitting down on a stool.

Watch Florence Welch & Father John Misty Cover “Love Hurts” At Coachella

Last weekend, as Florence + The Machine were playing the Coachella main stage just before Drake’s headlining spot, Florence Welch broke her foot.

Florence Welch Broke Her Foot During Her Coachella Set

I went to college in L.A., which means I experienced Coachella during the only period of life when a decent human should be subjected to it. That three-day desert festival marathon is a rough one, man. Don’t take it from me though; just ask Florence Welch, who somehow broke her foot during the festival. Welch,… More »

Florence + The Machine – “What Kind Of Man (Nicolas Jaar Remix)”

What Kind Of Man,” the first single from Florence + The Machine’s new album How Big How Bold How Beautiful, sounds very much like Florence + The Machine. It’s a big, bold art-rock howler of a song, a song that isn’t the slightest bit shy or reserved. It’s light years removed from the meditative, progged-out… More »

Florence + The Machine – “What Kind Of Man” Video + How Big How Blue How Beautiful Details

Earlier this week, Florence + The Machine debuted a video titled “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” that was too magnificently restrained not to be the precursor to something else.

Florence + The Machine – “Only The Love”

The soundtrack to The Great Gatsby has a pretty huge and ridiculous list of famous contributors: Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Andre 3000, the xx, Lana Del Rey. And somewhere in there, there will also be a scene of people in gleaming vintage tuxedos set to Florence Welch’s celestial wail. Florence + The Machine show up o… More »
