9/10 Ant Staff review, 25 June 2010
Here is what we said about the vinyl: Now in on super limited CD!! My ears really pricked up yesterday, as did our Business Lady's. The record responsible is from Washed Out who I've never heard of but Phil informs me that Pitchfork are creaming themselves over them. Okay so this isn't strictly a single but a 6 track mini-album but we thought we'd stuff in here anyway. We make the rules. It kicks off with 'Get Up' which is a warped 80's sun bleached electro-funk pop tune that's highly infectious. 'New Theory' is an almighty feelgood number with a kind of italo disco stomp with a melody to die for. The vocal harmonies and effects recalling the likes of Panda Bear/ Animal Collective. 'Hold Out' keeps the good vibes rolling with psychedelic swirls of pure synth pop, again with a gorgeous and authentic retro feel. I reckon this could move some butts on the dancefloor too. 'Feel It All Around' is like some forgotten 80's synth pop 45 being played on 33 and warping under the scorching heat of a blazing California sun. 'Lately' ups the tempo and makes me imagine that perhaps this is what a Brian Wilson disco record may have sounded like. The record ends on a high with 'You'll See It' which again has some luscious melodies. 'Life Of Leisure' is the debut release from Ernest Greene who recorded all the tracks at his parents home. Out on Brooklyn's Mexican Summer label, limited to 2000 copies on high quality virgin vinyl with download code. Very limited number available!
