If you haven't yet heard 'Sail' by AWOLNATION then where the hell have you been?? Get out from under that rock and listen to this track. This song, from the album 'Megalithic Symphony' on Red Bull Records, was everywhere last year and ensured that this band quickly rose to prominence. Deservedly so, as the rest of the album is excellent. The band's unique sound straddles alternative rock (á la Beck) and electronic inspired hip-hop, yet maintains a distinctly classic "indie" feel. Yeah, I don't know what genre that is either! Other noteworthy tracks include 'Not Your Fault', the second release from the album, and 'Kill Your Heroes'.

Fronted by Aaron Bruno, formerly of Under the Influence of Giants and Hometown Hero, the band takes its name from the fact that Aaron was regularly AWOL in his High School years.
