Aw, Ani Difranco :( The Queen of Independent music has been Done Wrong.
See what I did there?
GAHHHHHHH. So good!
Just searched and you’re right, some of the older pics of her do show her sporting coppery hair. Not quite Florence or Tori red, but yeah, I can see it! Never noticed that. ;)
Nathan, I think you’re thinking of Tori Amos. Kate Bush is brunette.
Why do people keep mentioning Kate Bush? She sounds NOTHING like Kate Bush vocal wise and Bush is and always has been quite left of the middle. Florence’s music, while striking, triumphant and towering is nothing more than mainstream pop, and touches no where near the experimental prowess of Bush. Welch has a very soulful, bottom of the whiskey barrel voice whereas Bush is ethereal and other-wordly. Bush has always relied on non-conventional song structures and Welch’s music is pretty much formulaic in it’s structure. Welch has hooks. Bush rarely does. It makes me wonder if these music journalists have ever actually listened to Kate Bush. Or is it just cool to mention her name? In other news, I quite like the new Florence record, even though I’m pretty resigned to the fact that we’ll hear most of those tracks in every fucking movie trailer for the next year.
Ha! You have the headline “50 kinds of snow” directly above the actual title “50 words for snow”. Proof read much?
Very excited for this album! New Bjork, Pj Harvey, Tori Amos and Kate Bush in the same year. Damn good year.
Pretty Good Year, best song by anyone. Period.
