Day 296: Slow-motion Jello + yet even more Washed Out

5 May

Here’s a super short blog post for you guys tonight, mainly because my allergies are really messing with my brain right now.

A friend of mine posted “Slow-motion Jello” on Facebook earlier, and it blew my mind. Seriously. It’s unbelievable.

Isn’t that freaking awesome? I can’t even… I don’t even know what to think!!

In addition to that craziness, I wanted to include the new Washed Out song that also blows my mind. The song is called “Eyes Be Closed” (off of his upcoming album Within And Without, available in July), and it is beautiful. The chillwave beat and the powerful melody works together in a wonderful symphony. At least it does in my head!

Enjoy “Eyes Be Closed”

Day 289: New Theory by Washed Out

24 Apr

I know I featured Washed Out a couple of weeks ago (with the theme song to Portlandia), but I really wanted to post this song because it’s been on the front of my mind for a while.

I got the song as a free download in some random iTunes playlist, and I never really heard it until a few days ago. And while yeah, a lot of people would label it “hipster,” it’s really great to just jam out to. I’m a big fan of the chillwave movement (what with Ducktails, Panda Bear, and of course Washed Out)… makes riding around in the warm weather with a pair of ray-bans feel so fine.

So hopefully you’ll enjoy “New Theory” by Washed Out. Go enjoy some sunshine!

Day 282: Feel It All Around by Washed Out

23 Mar

If you’ve ever watched the show Portlandia and chilled out to the theme song without know what it was, you’re in luck!

“Feel It All Around” by Washed Out is my hipster-chillwave song of the week. Whenever I need to take a break from being AWESOME, I bust out this song and just relax (while still keeping AWESOME. yeah. that’s right.)

So enjoy this chill song, “Feel It All Around” by Washed Out!
