The Lumineers – The Lumineers

The Lumineers – The Lumineers

The Lumineers‘ self-titled album bursts through the seams of my shirt pocket and straight into my needy heart. Reminding me of a younger version of Mumford and Sons, the band’s sound is acoustic, wired with folk, and full of feeling. Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites old stomping grounds were in...

Florence + the Machine – Ceremonials

Florence + the Machine – Ceremonials

This past summer, I discovered Florence and the Machine’s album Lungs and fell madly in love with her unique fluttering voice integrated seamlessly with heart bellowing drums, keyboard, guitar, and harp.
