So here, in Atlanta, is ridiculously cold right now! I checked Weather.com a few hours ago to see New York and Atlanta with exact matching temperatures (°26F). This song, which happens to be one of my top favorites in 2009, pulls me out of my present misery and takes me to a sunny oasis somewhere on the West Coast.
Washed Out (real name Ernest Greene) may happen to be the hottest thing Georgia has seen in a while (along with faves Brittany Bosco and Danny!…more on them soon!). Thanks to hipster music’s online bible Pitchfork.com for putting me on. This is simple, muffled dreamy synth-pop that compels you to smile and dream of whatever version of heaven on earth you may think of. Here’s a fan-made video to complement the amazing music. Definitely check his other songs, all fantastic and 80’s-esque as well:
