Washed Out – “Eyes Be Closed”

By brandon / May 2, 2011

That Washed Out’s Ernest Greene named his Sub Pop/full-length debut Within and Without and paired it with that above image gives you a good idea of the album’s overall sound. When not making like Usher, he left the bedroom and recorded with Ben Allen, who co-produced Merriweather Post Pavillion, Halcyon Digest, and St. Elsewhere, among other things. The nine-song collection opens with “Eyes Be Closed.” Like most of Within, it “shimmers.”
