When I meet someone new and tell them where I am from, I say "I'm from North Carolina." Often, their reaction is, "I've heard CAROLINA is beautiful." After this, I have to explain there is no CAROLINA--there are 2 very different states (after all, would you say "Ohhh I've heard DAKOTA is beautiful"). I then go into the idea how North Carolinians tend to consider South Carolina as an inferior state--save Charleston for the 3 days you may spend their for a vacation. Well, you know HIFEVER fans, I think I may be warming up to my former southern neighbor.
Meet WASHED OUT
WASHED OUT is from Columbia, South Carolina and makes dreamy, compressed, downbeat, pop music. I suggest the track "I Feel it All Around," which sounds like music someone would make if they listened to 10cc's "I'm Not In Love" continuously while on a peyote-fueled speed boat odyssey. THIS is a good thing. Anyway, check out the rest for yourself right here:
But Don't Take My Word For It (shit don't mean fuck to me, after all)
ALSO--A Very Special Birthday WISH for our very own ANGO. Take our breath away.
