Washed Out - "Far Away"

For those familiar with the most recent live incarnation of Ernest Greene’s Washed Out project, you won’t be too surprised with this new performance video for “Far Away.” But, for those new to Washed Out’s more fleshed-out live setup, he pushes his breezy brand of sample-pop into increasingly yacht-rockier climes, roping in lots of live percussion and a sax, to boot. Greene, as this Yours Truly video will display, is unashamed of this direction. (He even made a Classic Rock mix.) Now that Greene’s wife, Blair, is in the band, maybe a Wings comparison? Would anybody go for that? Y/N? Hit up the video below.

  1. First the Destroyer album, then Bon Iver’s “Beth/Rest”, then Holy Ghost working with Michael McDonald, and now this. Yacht rock revival is officially a trend now. I have mixed feelings about this.

  2. I have mixed feelings about your face, Michael.

  3. this is basically the yacht rock version of “hold out”. different beat, words, but similar overall progression and melodies.
