Rad Music // Washed Out X

leave a comment »

Washed Out put out his debut LP, Within and Without, out earlier this year with amazingly rad results. The album will undoubtedly improve your summer if you let its equalizing and harmonious melodies penetrate your soul. Seriously, get on that.

More recently though, Washed Out got together with Yours Truly to perform a more “acoustic” and “soft rock” version of his song “Far Away.” Apparently, Ernest Greene has been delving in to the classic rock sounds of yesteryear. The video and sounds are enticing as they serve as previews of what to expect when seeing Washed Out live. I must admit, considering Washed Out is touring with Cut Copy this Autumn, I really thought that this video was going to be a cover of Cut Copy’s song “Far Away” rather than Washed Out’s. Kind of a bummer I got my hopes up…

Be sure to pick up Within and Without over on Sub Pop Records.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
