The Fantastic Symphony Washed Out Mix

Posted by Jakub

You would all tell me if my frequent posting on Washed Out was unhealthy right? well this is somewhat special since its a mix from his blog that you can download for free. Its really crispy and diverse like finding a damaged cassette mix from the basement of your favorite radio station that 25 years old and playing it.

Arch M – “Bedrm Band at Caf NVA (edit)
The Samps – “Magnetic Thys
Samiyam – “Wrap Up
Toro Y Moi – “Brubek
Koushik – “Homage
Osborne – “Afrika (Bullion Remix)
Iasos – “Inter-Dimentional Music
Jack Nitzsche – “Untitled (edit)
The Khalsa String Band – “Song of Bliss

Yeah, I wasn’t a fan. Saw Washed Out with Small Black Friday and loved the show, though.

“why even leave a comment” ? Are you suggesting that comments should just serve for people to be a ton of yes-men supporting everything posted?

Man-up and express some opinion on the content in question. Nobody *isn’t* thanking Jakub for offering this.

it starts off really nicely but i think he kind of lost it with the next few tracks, maybe its just my mood, and not that theyre bad tracks, but i just think its slightly too all over the place. just some constructive criticism

It’s alright. It would seem some aspects of it need refinement, especially in the “beat” area, sometimes it can get annoying.

I like this except the piano piece at the end. I like being thrown around a bit with a mix, yet this still holds together with the gritty, compressed sound.

I’m slightly bewildered at the lack of lovin’ for this! The “lack of refinement” helps make it for me.
Thanks for the link.

Neil –

I am too, I think the second track might scare some people off but the Arch M and Koushik tracks floor me everytime

i wouldnt say ‘scare’, theres really no music that scares me, its more that the first track brings you in so softly and makes you want more for at least a few more minutes. either way i put it on my ipod.

and ya ‘floor’ is the right word to describe arch m and koushik hah
