Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Nanoo by Yamantaka Eye
As you can probably tell, I’m pretty into weird, obscure collage-based art and this is another great example. This work is from a super-rare art book by the leader of Japanese noise band Boredoms. It reminds me a lot of Bjorn Copeland’s work (of Black Dice fame) which I also love. Pure chaos, using anything and everything for source material. -- Washed Out
Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Frank Mouris – Frank Film (1973)
I got really into old art films and experimental animation while putting together the visuals for the new album and this was one of my favorite discoveries. It’s made from hundreds (or thousands!) of magazine cut-outs meticulously assembled together to paint a picture of the psyche of the artist that made it...
Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Paul McCartney – Ram
I’ve loved this album for a long time. I love the messiness of it - you really get the sense that it was DIY project. Coming from being perhaps the biggest musician in the world (and working on some of the most expensive and professional recordings of all time), I have so much respect for him for making an album like Ram or McCartney...
Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: John Baldessari
I’ve talked a lot of about the animation that inspired a lot of the material for Mister Mellow in interviews leading up to the release of the album - but a lot of fine art was very influential as well. John Baldessari has done a wide range of work over the years (that is greatly summarized in this short documentary) - but the stuff I’m particularly fond of is the work that combines found photogra
Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: CODEK – Closer
I came across this song on the legendary lovefingers.org site (RIP) a few years back. I was lucky enough to inherit an archived collection of .mp3s from the site and this song was one of the big highlights for me. I love playing it out DJing - its so infectious and weird and the half-time groove that happens with the beat comes-in makes it so funky...
Washed Out x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: DJ SCREW MIXTAPES
Anyone looking for some solid background listening should check out all of the bootlegged DJ Screw mixtapes uploaded to youtube. I love to just have them playing in the morning when I’m working on email or cleaning up my studio. Its almost like how ambient music works for me - just let it wash over you. (Enjoy with or without a double cup of lean haha…) -- Washed Out
