Note-Able: AWOLNATION’S “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)”

Note-able is my very, very irregular post in which I talk about songs, musicians, bands, concerts…in other words, any music that I find special or worthy to be discussed.

I love AWOLNATION. Their album Megalithic Symphony is one of my most played albums. The physical CD is one of the few that is constantly in my car AND on my phone AND my MP3 player. I will play that CD until it’s dead and then I’ll buy another one. I don’t care that I have it on my computer and could just burn another. When I found out yesterday (apparently I’m a little behind) that they were FINALLY releasing a new album in March and had already released a single – Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf) – I immediately bought it. I have played it at least thirty times.

I’m so excited to have new music from them. My favorite thing about AWOLNATION is that while they do have a distinct sound, every single one of their songs is different. And incredible. They’re versatile and unique. Plus, Aaron’s vocal range is amazing. Yeah, alright, I’ll tone down the fangirl. I just really appreciate them as a band, and I’m really happy about the new music. I’ve included the music video for “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” below. It’s a fun video so you should definitely check it out.

What do you think? Do you have a song you think is note-able? Link me up in the comments! I love discovering new music.

Seize the Tuesday – American Beauty / American Psycho

Seize the Tuesday is a book blogger meme created by Adi Alsaid and the Let’s Get Lost Buddies Street Team, to share stories about how we’ve seized the Tuesday, with a special focus on the particular book we’re reading. We’ll share our posts online with the hashtag: #LetsAllGetLost. The idea is to share little ways in which you may have embraced Bree’s motto of seizing the Tuesday. To relate it to books, you can talk about what book you’re reading, and how you stole some moments from the day to enjoy reading. It doesn’t have to be about reading, but we all know that a well-read day is a day seized. The idea is not just to help spread the word on LGL, but also to remind people to live fully, even/especially if that means spending a part of your day reading.

Seize the Tuesday - Let's Get Lost

Yesterday was all about new music. Yesterday, one of my favorite bands for more than ten years, Fall Out Boy, released a new album titled “American Beauty / American Psycho”. So obviously, I bought it. I listened to it on the way to dinner last night, on the way home, and several times from beginning to end once I got home. It’s such a great album. This is a really, really short post. I just wanted to tell you guys to check it out, and that there is really nothing better than sitting in your room and listening to a new album. Okay, FINALLY buying a book you’ve been looking forward to for several months is even better, but new music is a close second. Losing yourself in music is a beautiful way to spend an evening. Try it.

Favorite tracks from the album from my first few listens:
