    Washed Out is on the verge of releasing their debut album, Within and Without. Today they have a duplex of songs for listening. "Echoes", which has found a home on Washed Out's debut album, set for July, is available for streaming. The ambient post-rock and funk fusion is water for your ears.

    If you're still thirsty, download the Grimes remix of "Eyes be Closed", Washed Out's first track release from the new album. This is one of those rare cases where the remix artist actually brings substance to the song instead of making it over with gimmicky face-paint. Grime's version is definitely more ambient than the original, but not in the Justin Bieber slowed-down 800 percent way. The added guitar hook, which is quite similar to the riff in The Shins' "Sleeping Lessons", wraps the repackaging in a bow. Check it out for yourself.
