PBS’ live performance show Austin City Limits has been on one hell of a roll lately, with an episode featuring Arcade Fire, another with Joanna Newsom and Fleet Foxes, and just this past weekend another great pairing: Lykke Li and Florence + the Machine. Both artists performed cuts from their 2011 sophomore albums – Li’s excellent Wounded Rhymes and Florence’s underwhelming Ceremonials – with each showcasing their impressive voices. This weekend’s show promises to be something special, as it stars one of the finest live bands on the planet: Wilco.
Watch Florence + the Machine and Lykke Li perform on Austin City Limits below.
Florence + the Machine also released a new video recently for Ceremonials single ‘Lover to Lover’. It’s a considerably stripped back live version of the track, which I prefer to the heavily orchestrated album cut. Check it out below.
