Washed Out: Paracosm
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
The second album from Georgia’s Ernest Greene (aka Washed Out) is an often-stunning set of dreamy, psych-tinged electro-pop. Featuring lusher production and a much greater variety of instrumentation than his 2011 debut album Within and Without, Paracosm’s songs sport richly detailed arrangements combining warm, atmospheric synths with a variety of instrumentation ranging from vintage keyboards like the Mellotron and Optigan to sitar, marimba and steel guitar for a wistful, melody-rich sound that’s ideal for Greene’s hazy vocals to lazily float above. 7/26/2013 - Don Yates
