Washed Out & Carly Simon

On this track, South Carolina's Ernest Greene (Washed Out) takes as his blue-print Carly Simon's Why (which was produced by Bernard Edwards & Nile Rodgers of Chic, and I posted Jesus, just under two years ago, and also sampled by A Tribe Called Quest for a Bonita Applebaum remix) and crafts a loving ship that's a bit rough around the edges, but ultimately sea-worthy, and capable of weathering whatever late-summer squall flashes on the horizon. Flashes of Air France and other hazy post-balearic navigators, too.

Go buy his Life of Leisure EP now. Life of Leisure is actually way more fucking spectacular than you might imagine from Belong (which I really like).
