Adult Swim’s “Eight Singles in Eight Weeks” project has reached the midway point and brought a really beautiful Washed Out (feat. Caroline Polachek from Chairlift) track with it. “You And I” is a way-too-sexy, hypnotizing, chillwave (god i hate this new term, but the music associated with it lately has been phenomenal) piece of music, and as your lawyer i recommend you download it and allow yourself to be carried away on a cloud of smoke whilst listening to it immediately.
Washed Out is Ernest Greene and he “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.” He hasn’t released any full lengths but his 3 EP’s spell only of more greatness to come.
ALSO! welcome new guest blogger, my lovely Tanya Avelar, who is about to give us a review of the two shows the xx played here in LA over the weekend. swooonn.
