Listening Post

The new Florence + The Machine album, Ceremonials, hit full release this week and, as expected, it fulfills the majestic promise of the band's debut record. Florence Welch always had a metric ton of Siouxsie inside her -- but I've always been fascinated by the fact that she seems to have skipped almost entirely over the punk days and gone right for an unabashed embrace of the Dazzle era's baroque splendor.

Here's the spectacularly gorgeous second single from the new album -- Shake It Out.
