How to Fix A Bad Song

I am not a fan of Florence and the Machine and I don’t have a good reason.  They aren’t a bad band I just don’t see the point of listening to her stuff when there are other artists who do the same style better (Neko Case, Adele, Lykke Li, etc, etc).  That being said, Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, has made me put aside my feelings for at least four minutes and forty seconds.  He has washed singer Florence Welch’s usually abrasively over the top vocals in some really grimey sonics.  It’s gorgeous and disgusting all at once.
