About Washed Out
Within and Without is the debut album by 28 year-old Atlanta-based songwriter and producer Ernest Greene, AKA Washed Out. Long adored and critically lauded in the blog world, Greene first came to prominence in the summer of 2009 after unassumingly posting a handful of bedroom-recorded tracks to his Myspace page from his family home in the seclusion of the tiny rural city of Perry, Georgia. Id been writing music on my own for three or four years previous to that, Greene explains, mostly as a way to experiment with songwriting processes. Those were just the first I ever shared.
Despite such modest intentions however, those first songs (many of which would appear on the acclaimed Life of Leisure EP of later that year) were about as complete an opening statement from an artist as imaginable. A heady, psychedelic concoction of what Pitchforks Mark Hogan termed romantic nostalgia and homespun textures, songs such as Belong and Feel It All AroundGreenes biggest hit to dateartfully match the glossy melody of 80s synth pop, the widescreen scope of early 90s Balearic dance music and the slowed, heavy bounce of southern Hip Hop production to gorgeously wistful vocals with results as undeniably idiosyncratic and original as they are deeply accessible.
