Far Away (Smooth Yacht Rock Live Version) - Washed Out

Recently described by Pitchfork as "chillwave dudenheimers", Washed Out are one of AOR Disco's favourite new bands and "Eyes Be Closed" (which can also be heard on Graeme Fisher's  Guest House Paradiso mix) is a contender for the best original track of 2011. Their  latest album Within And Without  was released on Sub Pop last month and Washed Out have recorded a new live version of Far Away, another track off the album, in homage to the golden age of 1970s soft rock. The video of the performance can be seen on Yours Truly.  

And if this wasn't enough to support the AOR cause, Washed Out have recently done this mix for Rough Trade featuring a host of classic rock edits.
