Music For Your Monday

It’s finally warm out, it’s little 5 season and there’s a ton of great music. What more can we ask for? Not much.

“St. Jude” is the second single from Florence and the Machine’s upcoming album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. Like the previous song, “What Kind of Man,” “St. Jude” is a devastatingly stunning song, showing off Florence’s incredibly strong vocals. However, there’s no crashing chorus that she’s known for, creating this sort of tension where the listener is waiting for the release after such a vocal and intrumental buildup, but the song just ends before it can come to that conclusion. Just from listening to these two songs, I expect this album to be Florence’s best; easily one of the most highly anticipated albums this year.

Sometimes I Sit and Thing, and Sometimes I Just Sit is like a great birthday-you get a new present every couple of minutes. Between the lyrics and Courtney Barnett’s vocals, “Depreston” is my favorite song from the album for now, but it would be a mistake not to listen to the album in its entirety.

This is a love song about the youngest of the Haim sisters, Alana. You deserve this. We all do. For real though, listen to some of Cold Front’s other songs. I found them because of this fantastic song, but this young band from Philly makes some fun music.
