Within and Without is the debut studio album by American singer Washed Out, released on July 6, 2011 by Sub Pop. The album debuted at number 26 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 15,000 copies, and by July 2013, it had sold 89,000 copies in the United States. The cover for Within and Without uses an image that also appeared in the May 2011 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, accompanying an article titled "Is This the Most Satisfying Sex Position?"
When Washed Out's Ernest Greene spoke to Pitchfork recently, he noted that he was working on the album in the same place that Goodie Mob were hammering out their reunion album. Quite different from the laptop on mom and dad's back porch that birthed Life of Leisure. Within and Without is a declaration to snarky ironists that there is nothing to be ashamed of with this sound. Feel It All Around", Neon Indian's "Should Have Taken Acid With You", and Toro Y Moi's "Blessa" entered this rarefied, awesome space between indie pop catchiness and fragile, narcotic groove, and here's a whole album of tracks on that level. That it comes at a time when others have abandoned the genre or quickly jumped on and then off to raise the stakes and get respectable, is even more impressive.

But with trust, with loyalty, with purity and most of all with immense love. In my opinion this album represents the unity of what sex should be. 2 months ago. Dont have sex to this unless you plan on staying with the person, will 10/10 ruin this after revisiting but some people are into sickening heartache so idk i'd recommend if you're into that I guess. 3 months ago. P1: "I am depressed yet horny. P2: "Have I got the album for you!" 3 months ago. WAS.
Within and Without is a heady mix of throbbing bass and cleverly layered synth sounds underpinning Greene's tender, faded vocals. The single "You and I," featuring Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, is a particular high point. But from the sumptuous melodies of "Eyes Be Closed" and the uplifting "Amor Fati" to the blissed-out haze of "Soft" and the title track, Greene's relaxed, sensual vibe creates a sustained mood of pleasurable nostalgia. Within and Without Washed Out. Alternative.
