I'm not sure if fellow Columbia, SC native Toro Y Moi helped turn NPIP on to Washed Out, or if it's just an awesome coincidence, but these guys are just as awesome, so take notice. It's definitely a very similar style between the two, and they are on each others top friends. I am once again stoked to hear this sound popping up on the east coast. Exciting things are happening. Check out a couple tracks below, and let's just hope there is plenty more where this came from.
