Ernest Greene, known by his stage name Washed Out, is an American singer-songwriter and record producer. His music career began when he started producing songs in his bedroom studio and working with a local band from his town. He recorded dance music, and shortly after won the favor of a number of influential music bloggers after they found his recordings on his Myspace page. His first recordings have been described as drowsy, distorted, dance pop-influenced tracks.

Washed Out’s style has been affiliated with genres like the chillwave movement. Ernest claims hip hop influences the way he writes his songs. His first two Washed Out EPs were released in 2009. He made his debut New York City performance at Santos Party House (his second performance ever). He has since performed at large music festivals including Pitchfork Music Festival, SXSW, Coachella, Lollapalooza, etc. His single “Feel it All Around” is the opening sequence of the TV show Portlandia.

In April 2011, Ernest signed to Sub Pop. His debut album, Within and Without, was released later that year. The album reached twenty-six on the U.S. BillBoard 200 and eighty-nine on the UK Albums Chart. Washed Out’s follow-up album, Paracosm, was released last year. The first single was “It All Feels Right,” followed by “Don’t Give Up.”

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2014 Day Two

May 26th, 2014
Comments Off

Now that Sasquatch! has reverted back to a 3-day format, it’s far too easy to see Saturday as something bland, sandwiched in between the exciting first day and thrilling third day. There were definitely a couple of savior acts later on, but many of the bands playing while the sun beat down–mercilessly–failed to bring much of anything electrifying to the table. Tight sets, for sure, but too often, straight out of the box, dull performances. At least credit can be given for toiling their way through the heat.

Hype Hotel SXSW 2014 Artists Announced ft. London Grammar, Chromeo, Haerts

February 26th, 2014
Comments Off

Hype Hotel’s lineup for SXSW 2014 is insane in all the best ways. They’ve been keeping south by revelers happy and dancing for years now, casually bringing in some of the world’s best emerging artists alongside free Taco Bell and Tito’s all under the same roof, but their artist lineups are just getting silly good. This year features London Grammar (one of the only shows announced outside of a morning KGSR recording and a showing at the iTunes festival), Washed Out, Chromeo, perennial favorites R.A.C, Kelis, Jungle, Tokyo Police Club, Against Me!, The 1975, Wye Oak, Haerts, Chet Faker, Chloe Howl, Panama Wedding, The Colourist – I could go on for longer, but it’s probably better for you to just read on and see the full lineup for yourself instead of just hearing bands I like. Hype Hotel goes across 5 days, so we’ll be announcing individual day artist lineups as they’re announced – stay tuned!

Tuesday – Saturday, March 12th-15th @ Hype Hotel, 505 E 7th St Austin, TX 78701

Washed Out – Paracosm

No Sophomore Slump Here

Washed Out, also known as the Georgian musician Ernest Greene, chose an apt title for his sophomore album Paracosm, out this week. A paracosm is a complex imaginary, fantasy world, populated by humans, animals, or other creatures—think Middle Earth or Narnia, but not necessarily with the nefarious evil wizards or monsters. On Paracosm, Washed Out invites you to step into a carefully concocted technicolor dream world.

Washed Out, Live at Sonos Studio

July 31st, 2013

Shortly before 7 P.M. on La Brea Avenue, an abundance of gaudy hipsters queued as far as the eye could see. Earnest Greene, AKA, Washed Out, performed an exclusive show at Sonos Studio, a small and cozy, yet quaint and dainty art studio in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. The Sonos Studio website says the venue is “an acoustically designed gallery designed for music listening.” Although some might disparage the minimal attempt of sound proofing the space itself and a lack of a behemoth sound system, the music was surprisingly and clearly audible from any point in the room. The room itself was like any typically art gallery: a big square room, with white walls and lots of room for exhibits.

The exhibit at the time of the show was particularly interesting. It featured tubes of fluorescent light, dangling from the ceiling. Imagine a giant chandelier forming a fortress of solitude above the stage and around the band. The lights would react to the music: portions of the fluorescent lights would turn on or off contingent upon the music what sound frequencies those lights were reacting to, or what the music in general sounded like.
