Today Weird World Records are releasing a 12″ single of Washed Out‘s Amor Fati. The track, which features on his debut album, also comes with the excellent B-Side Call It Off. Call It Off sees Washed Out venture into much darker territory and at times it feels a bit like The Knife covering a rare Depeche Mode record. While Washed Out’s debut album didn’t excite me quite like his first two EPs, it’s good to hear a track like Call It Off come along and prove that Ernest Greene is still making fresh and exciting sounds.
You can download a free copy of it here or grab it as a bonus track on the iTunes edition of the album. Amor Fati is released as a 12″ single today through Weird World Records, and features Call It Off as well as remixes by Clams Casino and Au Revoir Simone and some rather beautiful artwork.
Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several years. Tiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. It’s amazing how surgically accurate she must sit, I assume using her eyes to align each shot.
