Backwoods: Track of the Day – Washed Out “All I Know”
Backwoods Music Festival in Oklahoma may be in the middle of nowhere, but it’ll be the place to be in September for Labor Day weekend. The fest may not be until summer’s end, but the buzz about this awesome camp-out has already started. Oklahoma might not be someone’s first choice for a destination spot, but that’s the point (hence the name Backwoods). The festival’s full lineup has finally been released and tickets are selling fast. Today’s track of the day comes from Washed Out. The track is “All I Know” off of their latest full length album Paracosm.
“All I Know” showcases Washed Out in a nutshell. Each track’s vocals are soothing and calm, but once the music kicks in it’s almost impossible not to dance a little but. Starting off slow and ending with a full climax, it’s hard to count how many different instruments and sounds were involved in the making of “All I Know.” Chimes, drums, synth, guitar, drums, bass, ambient tones, vocals, shakers, the list could make your head spin. Washed Out has the ability to be an extremely laid back band, but one that still rocks out in a festival setting. Each member is very well versed in their instrument and each track becomes an orchestra of sound. Their songs build, grow and evolve like the human condition. “All I Know” is surely a track that will get any festival crowd moving. Check them out at Backwoods Music Festival in Oklahoma the beginning of September and be prepared to zone out to their smooth sounds.
