WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Florence + the Machine “Not Fade Away”

Tonight The Black Keys and Florence + the Machine will reign the stage at Summerfest’s Marcus Ampitheater and there’s a strong possibility that the stage might  spontaneously combust, mid-show. The energy from each act, alone, is inspired enough to take on crowds ten times the size of tonight’s space, and both the Keys and Florence Welch have honed their undeniable skills  through constant touring. Welch has definitely been quite the busy gal (singing for the Grammys and such) and might be a bit of a show-stealer  if the Keys aren’t completely en pointe. Her furiously soulful vocals on a recent cover of Buddy Holly’s timeless “Not Fade Away” (from a new collection, Rave On Buddy Holly) are a good show of why Welch is becoming a musical force to reckon with and then some.
