Jam Of Tha Day: Monday 16th May 2011

Washed Out - Feel It All Around

Taken from his 2009 EP entitled Life of Leisure, Washed Out (aka) Ernest Greene was caught up in the boom of a new subgenre coined Chill Wave. Artists such as Memory Tapes, Toro Y Moi & Neon Indian were grouped together as creating a distant throwback, relaxed, 80's nostalgic quality to their music. Whilst Toro Y Moi and Memory Tapes have since radically changed their styles somewhat Washed Out's first LP sounds seem to have stayed in the style. Regardless of the politics about the sub genre etc just remember it's all about what the music does to you-for me this track transports me into a funky & tranquil mood every time i drop this jam.

Dig it!
