There are flavors used in Ernest Greene’s music that remind me of a birthday song that I had on tape when I was little. You know the kind right? Where they make a fun song, and then substitute your name in it so you would feel special. Well I did. Very special in fact. I must’ve played that thing a million times. Washed Out brings those birthday feeling bubbling to surface and smoothes your hair while sashaying down a California beach board walk. “You And I” is part of the Kia Adult Swim Singles Program (disclaimer: I own one/ I watch it) going on where 8 dedicated songs will be debuted week by week. The song has a darker tinge to the dreamscape Greene usually paints, but with flattering and surrounding vocals by Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, it should still leave you rested when you wake.
