Washed Out – “It All Feels Right” Lyric Video

It’s been interesting watching the progression of the class of ’09 artists — including Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, and Neon Indian — lumped together under the genre-tag that shall not be named™. Either that storm got under their skin, or they were all coincidentally and preternaturally mercurial, but in any event, they’ve proven the most difficult to consistently label from release to release, let alone as an aggregate group. Here then is young Washed Out’s newest guise, with “It All Feels Right.” The artist born Ernest Greene has always had a way with feelings, but here he honeydips that sanguine sensitivity in overtly psychedelic garb; that’s to say, Washed Out’s sound on “It All Feels Right” has more in common with Tame Impala than hypnogogic anything, give or take a flanged guitar. Not to put too fine a point on any of this, the single comes to you via a lyrics video with kaleidoscopic flowers in bloom, and all the quotes for any budding blog-hippie in need of a new ethos to build around. Watch/listen:

“It All Feels Right” comes from the Ben Allen-produced Paracosm, out in August via Sub Pop.
