Album: Washed Out, Within and Without (Weird World)
Sunday 10 July 2011
Washed Out, aka Ernest Greene, has been causing ripples among the chillwave cognoscenti since 2009, when a handful of Myspace tracks generated an internet buzz.
One approaches this sought-after artist, therefore, with no little anticipation, only to find his art barely there. Nobody will ever describe this as awful. Nor will they ever find themselves whistling these soothing synth confections on public transport. It's an album you can hear without ever really noticing. Radox for the ears.
