Florence + the Machine - Hardest of Hearts

I talk about our girl Florence around here with no small frequency. This is, in part, because I love and admire her music; it's also in part because I absolutely adore her. Or at least, the ideal of her that is presented to me.

I also love that every time I listen to her album Lungs, I like it more and more. It's never static.

The song that I'm posting today is one that wasn't initially one of my favorites when I first listened to the album. But I've been listening again recently, and out of nowhere, it really jumped out at me. As with any of her songs, it's raw and tinged with poignant melancholy. Also, as with any of her songs, it's absolutely gorgeous.
