Florence + The Machine fans: I’m a little late to this, no? My apologies. I had no idea that Rossetti’s Proserpine is walking among us, and singing with the astonishing voice of Annie Lennox 2.0:
Ho. Lee. Crap.
Between the phantasmagoric power pop of Florence + The Machine, the dark Americana of Anaïs Mitchell and The Civil Wars, the righteous folk-punk of Frank Turner, and many others, the musical landscape seems to be alive and thriving and as full of surprises as ever.
