Washed Out's "Feel It All Around" Unofficial Music Video

Washed Out Feel It All Around

Okay, so maybe this isn’t exactly a music video per se — it’s more like a montage of some exotic vacation that just so happens to be synced up to Washed Out‘s sleeper hit jam “Feel It All Around.” The high-def video was created by filmmaker Chase Heavener, who just so happens to own an amazing camera (Seriously, the video looks amazing). The euphoric, chill song and happy, leisurely vacation footage go extremely nicely together.

Washed Out’s latest album Life of Leisure sounds like it could have been put together by a 5 person band. The truth is, though, that Washed Out is just the alias of Georgia native Ernest Greene. His sound can best be described as lo-fi, hazy electro-pop while his vocals are rhythmically intoxicating.

…[Greene’s] music is exquisite almost beyond belief, but it’s got a bleached/blanched-out quality, like a photograph that’s lost its lustre, or a slowly fading memory-tape of classic 60s and 70s (and some 80s, such as Tango In The Night-era F Mac) pop.

Friendly Fires Remixes Phoenix's "Fences"

In keeping with the Phoenix theme of late, I figured that I’d throw up this hot new remix of them by Friendly Fires, a British indie/electro-pop group. The song is “Fences,” which is the third track on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.

With all the cowbell, snare drum, and piano in the beginning of the remix, for a second I thought I was listening to an early 90’s rap song— something like Boyz II Men’s “Motown Philly” or even Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison.” Alright, on second thought maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. (I forgot how awesome of a song “Poison” is — I’m totally gonna blast it at the next dance party I go to.) But seriously, take a listen to Friendly Fires’ killer rendition of “Fences” and let us know what you think.
