What I’m Working Out to Wednesday

20131107-131103.jpgLet’s see if I can actually post this on the right day of the week this time. I swear my summer vacation brain hasn’t completely taken over…yet…

I fell in love with Of Monsters and Men a few years ago when “Little Talks” came out. That was actually my least favorite song on the album and I loved that song! Their stuff is so incredible, and I’ve seen them in concert several times. They are from Iceland, and are super talented musicians. When you see them in concert, they have all kinds of crazy instruments on stage and the singers have these incredible voices that give me goosebumps. Love them. The hit off their new album that I’ve been hearing everywhere is “Crystals“, which I LOVE. But since the release of their album a few weeks ago, I’ve enjoyed the whole thing and currently have I Of The Storm on repeat. It’s sloooowwwww, so if you are thinking of adding it to a playlist, might be better suited for a recovery run or yoga playlist. Me, I jammed out to it on my progression run on Tuesday several times, but I listen to all kinds of weird stuff when I run. If you never heard of these guys, I highly recommend both of their albums. Love love love love OMAM!

    Ooh I love hearing what other people are listening too! I’m a big fan of Of monsters and men too! And so happy you love eminem too, he can do no wrong in my book. Hope you’re having a lovely day little flower! πŸ™‚

    I’m amazed you can find so many new jams to work out to. I’ve basically been listening to the same few playlists and albums for like 2 years, LOL

      Some of the jams I’ve been posting are older and have been on my playlist forever!! But a lot of good new stuff did come out recently so I’m loving it!!

    I love them too. We have an indie radio station that plays bands like that here. I’ll listen to your jam now!

    Oh, I love the title of the song how they use “I” instead of “eye.” That’s brilliant!

    • allisonfiorini July 8, 2015 / 3:26 pm

      It’s a good one – the whole album is pretty great!

      • suzysuzyheather July 9, 2015 / 1:54 pm

        I downloaded the whole album and I’m in love. Thank you so much for the referral!

    I love Of Monsters and Men, but I didn’t know they had a new album out! Thanks for the recommendation, I’m going to have to check it out πŸ™‚

    I loved Little Talks! You’re right though, the whole album was amazing. I really need to check out their new one.

    I loved their last album! I’m gonna have to get on this new one! I hadn’t heard “I of the storm” before your post; it’s such a pretty song and I think it’s just the right amount of slow. πŸ˜‰

    • allisonfiorini July 9, 2015 / 6:07 am

      Yes!!! I think it’s so pretty! I love her voice, and the lyrics are great!
