His cover of Coldplay's "Strawberry Swing" is particularly sublime.
Florence + the Machine - Lungs and Ceremonials
Florence Welch is only 25. I've seen her compared to Stevie Nicks and Bjork. A more apt comparison, in my mind, is U2. Ceremonials, especially, is filled with big, anthemic songs.
Florence + the Machine is to U2, as St. Vincent is to Radiohead. Discuss.
