Washed Out

Washed Out - FUV Live - 2013

by Alisa Ali

Ernest Greene, who goes by the name Washed Out, was a big part of the "chillwave" movement a few years ago. A wave of solo artists were making music on their laptops, experimenting with looping synthesizers, and layering sounds with different effect pedals and samples. Many people were first introduced to Washed Out by the TV show Portlandia, which uses his song "Feel It All Around" as its opening theme.

TAS Report - 8/21/13

On today's TAS Report, I'm bringing in new music from Washed Out. The album is called Paracosm and it's a dreamy collection of songs that are perfect for chilling out. Actually, Washed Out's music is often categorized as "Chill Wave", but I think Paracosm transcends this particular electronic music genre. The record has a very warm feel to it and seems to perfectly capture the feel of late summer. If you want to tune the world out and escape into your own world, put some headphones on and listen to this.
