Jam of the Day | Florence + the Machine - Shake It Out

 And I am done with my graceless heart
so tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart

Yeah, that's a powerful line.

It stands out even more when the majority of today's JOTD contains canned lyrics like "it's always darkest before the dawn" and "I can never leave the past behind." Canned, but passionate - I want to be clear: there is nothing indifferent about Flo. She can make the most common lyric seem like she dug it out of her backyard and presented it to the world.

But, you don't need me to tell you that; just listen to her voice. When she gets to the part about being done with her "graceless heart," you'll know if this is for you.

Purchase Ceremonials, the new album from Florence + the Machine, on iTunes.
