I'm not usually up on the latest in music, but thanks to Mary and Marguerite playing Florence & the Machine non-spot for the last two months, I have discovered a trendy new band that I think is really really good.

Seeing Florence at the Showbox last night was a lot of fun. She has a voice that is even more amazing in real life than it is on their album Lungs (and a well-named album it was). She's a great performer.

This isn't the best music video, but I think it's a pretty great song: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpLXQorSQe8?wmode=transparent]

Check her out! She's on her first US tour right now.
