Ceremonials - Florence is elegant!

This record has a great vibe to it. The songs are a mixture of Lungs and something that we haven’t heard yet. My favourite song on this record is What the Water Gave Me:

Ceremonials is definitely up to par with Lungs and I am excited to see what she’ll do on her next album. I just love her voice, I can't get enough of it. This is one of those records that you can’t get tired of listening to. The songs own grandiosity. You can simply say they are big. And if you're familiar with Florence, you know this is something she does magnificently well. I love how she uses lots of harp in her tunes, something of a trademark, a recognizable feature that totally works. I think that is why she is so unique. Florence is elegant!  Definitely buy this album! I did :)

V is the real deal!

I mentioned them before. 5th Projekt is probably Toronto's best kept secret. If you like depth in music, then you MUST listen to this band. They are, no doubt, the true definition of flawless.

Their new album V is a fantastic collection of tunes. It's a radical break from their former projects and you can taste the heavy edge they were hiding up until now. Each song presents a new energy and combined they are absolutely epic. This is an album you must listen to from beginning to the end. Then again and again. And each time you will discover something else hidden between the notes.
And when you think you have it all figured out, Tara surprises with an amazing interpretation of the classic White Rabbit. It's seriously too awesome to put in words, so I suggest you go and have a listen.

I saw them live in Guelph in August. Tara had a cold, but you honestly couldn't tell. Her voice was as amazing as usual and they had everyone stunned with their super professional performance.Here's a clip I recorded:
