Out Today: Washed Out Wins, R.E.M.'s First Bad Day, Incubus Chills

This week sees the return of Incubus with an original disc after a greatest-hits collection, Sublime's first round of music with new lead singer Rome, a set of re-imagined hits from Alkaline Trio, and and R.E.M. reissuing 1986's Life's Rich Pageant. Today also holds the debut LP of Washed Out, Ernest Greene's one-man chillwave wonder. No doubt Within And Without will rest firmly in someone's Best of 2011 list before midnight.

By now you should already own local boy Robert Ellis' Photographs, which came out last week. Snag a vinyl copy soon, as they are only limited to the initial run of 250. There are no immediate plans for another pressing on wax, so get one while you still can.
