In continuity with the aesthetic that Washed Out established when they released the summer fever-inducing album trailer for the forthcoming, summer anthem-packed Paracosm, they now give us the similarly floral and kaleidoscopic music video for “It All Feels Right”, the massive, hazy, lead off hitter for the new record. Out August 13th on Sub Pop Records.
If you pre-order Paracosm on CD or LP, you’ll receive the very limited-edition Washed Out 7" single, featuring “Pull You Down” b/w “Exit”, at no charge. Speaking of limited edition vinyl, if you pre-order the record on the larger, fidelity-maximizing LP format, you’ll receive the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of Paracosm. But, as is the nature of limited things, the sooner you order, the better your chances are of receiving them. Lastly, we have two brand new Washed Out t-shirts, both available at a discount when bundled with the Paracosm CD or LP.
Even just the small sample of Washed Out’s brand of hazy, summery pop music in the accompanying trailer for the forthcoming Paracosm has a way of lifting the clouds and warming the temperature from the long, damp, drawn out spring that we in Seattle seem to be hopelessly in the middle of. Paracosm, the long-awaited follow-up to Washed Out’s brilliant 2011 debut Within and Without, comes out on August 13th—just in time to ride ride out the heavy, languid days of summer. It’s getting a little poetic over here—must be the music.
Big (and likely confusing…) news from the Sub Pop Limited Edition Colored Vinyl Department, Seattle Branch: Washed Out’s brand new and really very fantastic LP, Within and Without, comes in all sorts of colored vinyl. If you purchase said record at your local record merchant, you’ll get it on either white or light blue vinyl. There’s more white than blue, and absolutely no black, but there’s really no telling which you’ll get until you crack the seal. However, if you pre-order the record from us, the Sub Pop Records and T-shirts Co. of Seattle, WA, you’ll for sure get Within and Without on the somewhat more rare light blue vinyl.
This is not the only news from the aforementioned and completely real, Sub Pop Limited Edition Colored Vinyl Department, Seattle Branch. If you purchase Within and Without at your local record merchant, it’s possible that you will also receive, as a free-with-purchase gift the 7" single “Belong” b/w “Phone Call” on traditional and really very nice black vinyl. Both of these songs were on Washed Out’s 2009 EP High Times and here make their first-ever appearance on the vinyl format. However! Again with that! If you pre-order Within and Without on CD or LP from the Sub Pop web concern, you’ll receive a copy of this 7" on clear vinyl! Only 700 of these were pressed on clear vinyl, and they go to the first people to pre-order Within and Without from us, so act super fast on this not-to-be-missed-unless-you-savor-regret opportunity! Also, there will be stickers!
