Florence + The Machine – Try A Little Tenderness (Otis Redding Cover)

April 27, 2012

Usually when we hear from Florence Welch, there’s equal part Florence and equal part Machine. But on this Otis Redding cover, all the mediation is stripped away, all the sonic ornamentation, gizmos and gadgets are thrown out the window. It’s a peek at Welch as exposed and naked as you’ll ever find her — it’s just her and the piano, and let’s be honest, you are hardly going to notice the piano on this one. Sure, this track could be seen as some plain, old vocal muscle flexing, but when you got the goods, sometimes you just gotta show them off.
