Obsessed Series 005: Manchester Orchestra

Nothing like seeing a band live.
Especially when you love them more than you did walking in.

I've always been a fan of Manchester Orchestra, but now it's like I truly fell in love with them. Sure I would listen to the handful songs I had from them recommended from various friends, but it's true love. I've never appreciated them like I do now and all of you, yes all of you need to, too. Andy Hull, singer/songwriter/guitarist, writes some of the most honest lyrics and his voice is so raw and fierce. I went to go see them in Charlotte on a whim and I'm so glad I did. I even walked out with their newest album on vinyl, Simple Math.

In other news,
+ I am officially home for the Thanksgiving holiday.
+ I did photography for my first wedding reception. Preview pictures to come!
+ I am looking forward to gaining 10+ pounds this week.
+ I've downloaded some new fonts & gotten new music. Both of which make me extremely happy!
+ I leave you with "Deer" by Manchester Orchestra and you'll understand my love. It is the first song on their new album. [Sorry, no actual music video for this song]


  1. I have a bit of their of music, but never really listen to them. I'll have to give them a try! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Hope your break is relaxing!! Can't wait to see your photos :)

  2. Looks like you did a bit of blog redesign as well- it looks great! And your post makes me want to fall in love with Manchester Orchestra all over again too :) There was this song that they put out a few years ago, "Don't Let Them See You Cry," and ever since then I've just been sold. Andy Hull's voice is just so pure/vulnerable. Love it.

    And oh goodness, I'm mentally preparing myself for the inevitable weight gain that is sure to come along with this holiday. I just hope my jeggings are forgiving!

  3. niice...I'll definitely have to check out more songs. thanks for sharing!

  4. I have until Tuesday night and then I'll be on break! Cannot wait. I'm not looking forward to the tire that will be placed along my waist. Happy eating! haha

  5. I saw them in September! They opened up for Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance. I remember them being so good.
    And I can't wait to see your photography of the wedding!
