Florence And The Machine
You can't get much more English than a name like Florence Welch. Her powerful pipes plow through familiar Brit bases -- Joss Stone's neo-soul, P.J. Harvey's eerie rock, Kate Bush's artsy pop, Goldfrapp's flirty electro-pop. But the music of Florence & the Machine is far from derivative, thanks in part to the wealth of musicians Welch has recruited to back her up. Gathering an array of artists has allowed her to delve into various genres, from the garage rock of hit debut single "Kiss with a Fist" to soulful singer-songwriter material and even upbeat dance-pop. The rich combination proved successful as her 2009 debut, Lungs, quickly rose up charts around the world, including the U.S. Billboard 200.

Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel
Runtime: 14 minNineteen-year-old British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg is a man of few words, that is until he begins his strumming. His unique voice is one that finds few, yet highly admirable comparisons - perhaps a rockabilly-folk twangy twist of The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle and Colin Meloy of the Decemberists. The release of his self-titled, full-length debut last October sent a sonic shockwave through the music world with songs like the feverishly hooking foot-pounder "Lightning Bolt" and the howling 60s rock sing-along "Two Fingers".
Jake took the stage late one evening at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, where he roared through his catalog of catchy hits for an rock-hungry crowd. And we were there to catch the solid solo kid in action.

-M- gained international exposure through his recording of the song "Belleville Rendez-vous" for the soundtrack of the 2003 Sylvain Chomet animated film The Triplets of Belleville in both French and English.
