Now Playing: Sara Bareilles – ‘Armor”

Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard we try as women, no matter how hard we fight, we’re still in the same place as we started. It can feel like we’ve made no progress at all. They tell us we’re not smart enough, pretty enough, or talented enough. They make us feel like we’re…

In the Woods

Flower crowns and flowy gowns. Enchanted forests where witches prowl and growl. Birds trapped in cages and love songs sung from broken rib-cages. This is where I choose to spend my time, with a songstress made of heartbreak and rhyme. Honestly, did you really think I could go this long without talking about Florence Welch?…

Now Playing: Dua Lipa – “Don’t Start Now”

Yes! Finally, disco for the modern era. Grab your bell-bottoms and platform shoes, we’re going dancing. I love this song, because I always imagine myself singing it in some big-budget movie musical. It would fit perfectly, don’t you think? See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on…

Now Playing: Sia – “Elastic Heart”

This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I had no clue that this song existed until a few weeks ago.

Album Review: Florence + The Machine – High As Hope

“You’ve Always Been My North Star” Even before High As Hope was released, Florence + The Machine fans knew that it would be a turning point for their enchanting, beloved queen. The three singles that were delivered in the months previous to the album’s launch date led us into uncharted territory. Each song felt so…

Florence + The Machine “Big God”

“You’ll Always Be My Favorite Ghost” We’re only a few days away from the release of High As Hope, but Florence + The Machine continue to surprise. Florence has graciously gifted us another miraculous single to obsess over. Big God is unlike anything Florence has ever created before. It’s so different from what we’re used…

Download This! (Late-Night Edition)

I’m at the point in my life where I rarely listen to the radio. When I do, I only listen to the classic rock station, anyway. I have no idea what singles are at the top of the chart. I have no idea which artists are in demand. It’s sad, I know. Ever since iTunes…

Florence + The Machine “Sky Full Of Song”

“Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long. I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song.” Here we are, together again. Reunited and it feels so good! We all knew this day was fast approaching, but it still came as a shock. After all, the anticipation was so…

Girl, Put Your Records On

These days, when you’re strolling down the aisles of your favorite stores, you’ve probably seen something that seems just a little bit out-of-place. In fact, I can bet you’ve asked yourself at one time or another, “Did I just see what I thought I did?” After all, we all thought they were obsolete. We never…

Work In Progress 

A Beautiful Mess I am a work in progress. I’m a bit of a rough draft. I’m not done yet. I’m not final. Yes, I’m a work in progress. I’ve got a few pages left. I’m still writing this self-titled track. For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on Facebook
