Washed Out – Life of Leisure EP [2009]

September 21, 2009

Album Post #5.  Life of Leisure by Washed Out released last week.  Washed Out is Ernest Greene, a 20-something living at his parents’ house that produced these dreamy tracks in just a few months.  Yes, I envy.  Apparently it was not Greene’s intention to have his pseudonym describe the sound of the music, but it does.  The tracks sound faded, which gives them a nostalgic feeling.  You are taken to a make-believe summer; Washed Out’s cassettes are on repeat  and you can’t stop dreaming of that first crush.  I woke up realizing that I had nearly worn out the mp3s.  Pace yourself.

I have some downloads for this one.  Here are 3 free downloads from Life of Leisure (right click and save link as…): Hold Out, Feel It All Around, and You’ll See It.  (The EP is definitely worth purchasing at only $5.50.)  And here are 2 other downloads not on the album: Belong (my favorite) and Luck.

I searched for as many Washed Out songs that I could find on youtube and put together this playlist with 4 of the 6 songs from the EP (not all the same as the downloads) and the single Belong.  And below I have included the most popular song, Feel It All Around, and Belong.

  1. Another ace dude. I’m not sure how to get this site more known, but keep it up. This blog is quality.

  2. Great find. The washed out, faded nostalgia is wonderful. Like the old super-8 films I have of my childhood. Thanks for the tip!
