Washed Out - Within and Without [2011] iTunes Bonus Track Version

Washed Out is Ernest Greene, a young guy from Georgia (via South Carolina) who makes bedroom synthpop that sounds blurred and woozily evocative, like someone smeared Vaseline all over an early OMD demo tape, then stayed up all night trying to recreate what they heard. There’s a sense of longing and distance in Greene’s somber, filtered vocals, but it’s what he does compositionally that makes Washed Out stand out.

“You And I,” the sexy, Caroline Polachek-guesting piece that flows/feels like “older” “Feel It All Around”-style Washed Out (only bigger). More recently Sub Pop unveiled “Eyes Be Closed,” the psychedelic pop whirl that opens the album with the sonic equivalent of a summer breeze. Outside of closer “A Dedication,” a song that showcases a new angle for Greene, the rest of the album feels a bit shadowier, but just as warm. “Eyes Be Closed” fades into the darker “Echoes,” which makes good use of ’80s ballad sound effects and an after-hours neon-colored vibe (for some reason, “You Belong To The City” comes mind). The next track, “Amor Fati,” evokes the opener’s easy, Caribou-esque feel.
