DJ Mason Interviews Washed Out

This past Wednesday, WKNC had the unique opportunity to interview Ernest Greene, frontman for Washed Out. The band is credited by some as a pioneer of the chillwave genre. Washed Out’s song “Feel It All Around” has been featured as the theme music for IFC tv show “Portlandia,” and its most recent album “Within and Without” is rising in the college radio charts. Pitchfork awarded the album a rating of 8.3, naming it “Best New Music.” In addition, the LP landed a spot as WKNC’s 27th most played this past week. Washed Out will be touring with Cut Copy this September and will make a stop at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro.

Mason and DJ Ones discuss Google Music Beta

As more companies invest their time and efforts into cloud computing, it seemed only fit that we dissect the latest iteration that is attempting to transform how individuals gain access to their music library, namely, Google Music. The service, which is still in beta and currently only available for those that submit themselves for an invite to the beta, is completely free for users to try at this point. How that will change, well, no one is sure just yet. Regardless, Mason and myself, DJ Ones, took a moment to sit down and talk about our experiences with the service thus far. If you ever wanted an idea of what the service is like, or you are still waiting for that invite to show up in your inbox, listen to the full discussion.
