Florence + The Machine - What Kind of Man

Florence lives!! Thank god she is back, because Lana del Rey has basically stolen the Queen of indie crown and she's the worst. (Except video games. Love it forever). "What Kind Of Man" came out this week with a video, and from the looks of it, lots of fucked up shit has been going on in Flo's life since we last heard from her. Including but not limited to: weird gang bang orgies, car crashes, baptisms. That or she is a Sia fan. Re the actual music: I don't really know how to feel. It's kind of screamy. There's heavy guitar. Someone listened to their Alanis Morrisette CD! What I'm trying to say is that if you are looking for Dog Days are Over, move along. I feel like all her old music is floaty and filled with harp so it makes sense this is jarring. Ultimately though, she is one half of the duo that gave us Sweet Nothing, and so I must support this. not totally on board with it but THATS WHAT CALVIN WOULD WANT. Also this is one song. The whole album could sound like Cosmic Love or it could sound like Guns n Roses. The Machine is maybe having an identity crisis. We shall see. On June 2nd. Ugh.
