If you want epic and beautiful music...

As you may have noticed, with the return of primetime television also comes the return of CineMUSic. And last night, "Grey's Anatomy" returned for the second half of its sixth season. And let me just say, without the music during the last few minutes of the show, I would have been let down - okay, more let down.

If you haven't heard of Florence and the Machine, get out from under that rock that is your home, get on this thing called 'the Internet' and start listening. Florence and the Machine is the London based singer/songwriter Florence Welch. As of late, she has been compared to Bat For Lashes (who was featured on Dollhouse in November and I swiftly had a joyous meltdown) and Kate Bush (who is a goddess).

Last night her song "
Cosmic Love" was used to make a not-so-intense scene seem... well, epic! Thanks to pounding drums, ethereal strings, and Florence's strong voice, it totally worked. People are hunting her music down after last night's episode and a serious spike in the use of her music is inevitable. Her song "Kiss With A Fist" has been used in quite a few shows (and is actually quite unlike the rest of her songs), but "Cosmic Love" is a gem that will send people into frenzies with how lovely it is.

If you're one of those people who takes pride in having heard of an artist sooner than other people, start listening now. It won't be long before you start hearing her music in a
Cadillac commercial every second of your life.
