CD of The Week from Washed Out
Ernest Greene records and performs as Washed Out. On his second full-length record Paracosm, he takes the dreamlike, otherworldly atmospheres of his music further by adding a variety of old keyboards to his sonic palette of computers and synths. Greene and his wife Blair (who plays in the Washed Out live band) recently relocated from Atlanta to a house outside Athens, Georgia. Escaping is a theme on Paracosm. The title refers to a phenomenon in which people create detailed imaginary worlds.
