Washed Out - "Straight Back" (Fleetwood Mac Cover)

The indie rock scene will pay their respects to Fleetwood Mac, who just announced they will reunite next year, via a tribute album Just Tell Me You Want Me on Aug. 14th. MGMT, Lykke Li, The New Pornographers, and Best Coast are among the featured artist, but Ernest Greene seemed to be the artist who best found that happy medium between the original and their own sound. Most aptly described on Stereogum as "if Mac took a trip to Ibiza," you can hear Washed Out's shimmering take on the slow rock jam off 1982's Mirage below.
