Do I need to tumble?

I have some new brass, never been fired. No gunk on it.

After I full length resize, trim etc, can I just wash it to remove the lube or should I tumlbe it as well before priming?

Finn Aagaard a late great hunter and gunwriter used to despair of people tumbling and polishing brass, 'I want to be able to see how used they are' he has written. I think if they are clean then all is fine eslecially with new brass, after sizing, trimming and a careful inspection.
