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…

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

Album Review: Florence + The Machine – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

“She’s fragile and she’s ferocious” The dream world, a creation made of myth and melody. She is its mother, its creator; the designer of sun and sky, of storms and seas. She is the orchestra and conductor too; the summoner of harmonious hymns and the mistress of magnificent melodies. She will take you through the…

Florence + The Machine “St. Jude” 

Chapter 2 Hear the heavy beat of her heart barely breathing from behind. Another conversation with no destination, another battle never won Watch as the rain pours down upon lovers in the haunted ruins of a former home. And each side is a loser, so who cares who fired the gun He is bruised and…

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

This Is Only the Beginning Listen to the ethereal echo, her goddess’ call. A song so beautiful it’s as if it was created from the heavens above. Listen as the strings tremble and the trumpets sound. Watch as a soul divided dances in rhythm and breathes in rhyme. Watch as we leave one life behind…

Press Play Friday: Lily & The Parlour Tricks

“They say it so much better than I possibly ever can.” It was accidental, my discovery, entirely serendipitous. I had no clue what I was walking into and I certainly had no idea where my initial infatuation would lead. Little did I know our chance meeting would cause us to become more than just accidental…

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness “Cecilia and the Satellite”

“For all the things my eyes have seen, the best by far is you.” I had planned an entirely different kind of music post for today, filled with cushy pop songs you’ve probably heard before. I was, literally, in the midst of writing that post when I saw Cecilia quietly tiptoeing around this morning. She…

Press Play Friday: Fresh Music (8/30/13)

Dog Days Are Over The final days of summer are upon us, fading and fleeting, threatening to dilute that sticky, sweet, dreamy haze of residual sunshine and warmth. Arriving without warning, lying hidden amongst the slowly dying flower beds and sun-kissed smiles, it waits. Wanting. You know it’s there, desperate to steal away the last…
