Florence & The Machine

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Florence & The Machine - Lungs Lungs
Pop New - LP 27019106 Island
Sealed 2009 Gatefold Original With Custom Song Hype Sticker On Shrink. “Precocious Brit Florence Welch Fired A Bullet Into The Head Of The U.K. Music Scene In 2008 With The Single "Kiss With A Fist," A Punk-Infused, Perfectly Juvenile Summer Anthem That Had Critics Wiping The Names Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, And Kate Nash From Their Vocabularies And Replacing Them With Florence + The Machine. While The Comparisons Were Apt At The Time, "Kiss With A Fist" Turned Out To Be A Red Herring In The Wake Of The Release Of Lungs, One Of The Most Musically Mature And Emotionally Mesmerizing Albums Of 2009. With An Arsenal Of Weaponry That Included The Daring Musicality Of Kate Bush, The Fearless Delivery Of Sinéad O'Connor, And The Dark, Unhinged Vulnerability Of Fiona Apple, The London Native Crafted A Debut That Not Only Lived Up To The Machine-Gun Spray Of Buzz That Heralded Her Arrival, But Easily Surpassed It. Like Kate Bush, Welch Has Little Interest (For The Most Part) In Traditional Pop Structures, And Her Songs Are At Their Best When They See Something Sparkle In The Woods And Veer Off Of The Main Trail In Pursuit. "Kiss With A Fist," As Good As It Is, Pales In Comparison To Standout Cuts Like "Dog Days Are Over," "Hurricane Drunk," "Drumming Song," "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)," And "Cosmic Love," All Of Which Are Anchored To The Earth By Welch's Knockout Voice, A Truly Impressive And Intuitive Trio Of Producers, And A Backing Band That Sounds As Intimate With The Material As Its Creator.” - James Christopher Monger, AMG... more details

Florence & The Machine - Ceremonials Ceremonials
Pop New - LP B0016299 Universal Republic
Sealed 2011 180gm 2LP Gatefold Original With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. “There’s A Point Just Past The Halfway Mark On “Shake It Out,” The Rousing First Single From Florence + The Machine's Second Studio Release, When The Swelling Guitars, Organs, And Strings, Staccato Percussion, And Florence Welch's Air-Raid Siren Of A Voice Lock Up In A Herculean Battle Over Which One Is Going To Launch Itself Into The Stratosphere First. It’s A Contest That Plays Out At Least Once On Each Of Ceremonials' Immaculately Produced 12 Tracks. Such Carefully Calculated Moments Of Rhapsody Would Dissolve Into Redundant Treacle In Less Capable Hands, But Welch Does Emotional Bombast Better Than Any Of Her Contemporaries, And When She Wails Into The Black Abyss Above, The Listener Can’t Help But Return The Call. Bigger And Bolder Than 2009’s Excellent Lungs, Ceremonials Rolls In Like Fog Over The Thames, Doling Out A Heavy-Handed Mix Of Brit-Pop-Infused Neo-Soul Anthems And Lush, Movie Trailer-Ready Ballads That Fuse The Bluesy, Electro-Despair Of Adele With The Ornate, Gothic Melodrama Of Kate Bush And Floodland-Era Sisters Of Mercy. Producer Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Friendly Fires) Knows That The Fiercest Weapon In His Arsenal Is Florence Herself, And He Stacks Her Vocals Accordingly, Creating A Fevered, Pagan Gospel Choir On “What The Water Gave Me” And “Leave My Body,” A Ghostly, Phil Spector-Ish Chorale On The Surprisingly Beatlesque “Breaking Down,” And A Defiant, Uplifting Horde Of Merry Pranksters On The Spirited “Heartlines,” Resulting In That Rare Sophomore Outing That Not Only Manages To Avoid The Slump, But Bests Its Predecessor In The Process.” – J.C. Monger, AMG... more details

Pop New - LP B0023116 Republic
Sealed 2015 LP Original With Printed Inner Sleeve. Includes The No. 1 Smash "What Kind Of Man" And "Ship To Wreck."
