As viewers, we do the same. In a cinema, our ideals and fantasies are transferred from the mind to the screen, from within to without.
Walt Whitman puts it this way in his Song of Myself :. But it is vital to detach ourselves from an experience, and interpret its value relative to everything else.

Within and Without. Nick Mastrini Follow. Drums are bold and complex, reflecting the almost Pete Rock-aping found on Washed Out's tour-only Untitled EP , and live instruments are used for atmosphere the way samples were before.
One of the most chilling, affecting moments of Within and Without happens when cello swings through "Far Away". The album's also very sensual and not just because of the American Apparel-lite album cover.
Its beats slink along like those Public Enemy drums creeping through Madonna's "Justify My Love" , and there's a lush, snowy warmth to the production one of the songs is even called "Soft". No longer a stand-alone Adult Swim-released single, "You And I", featuring Chairlift's Caroline Polachek, is the soundtrack to a tender, Sunday morning make-out session, and well, just listen to that throbbing bassline.
It's a purposeful period at the end of the album; the point where the record stops worrying about dancing and seems intent to curl up and get cozy. Within and Without is a declaration to snarky ironists that there is nothing to be ashamed of with this sound. 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.
