Washed Out

Paracosm LP

The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, and on his second full-length, Paracosm, he takes the dreamlike, otherworldly atmospheres of his music a huge leap further.
 
The title refers to a phenomenon in which people create detailed imaginary worlds, and the idea of escaping is all over Paracosm's music and lyrics. Paracosm finds Greene reaching beyond the computers and synths that filled Washed Out's previous recordings, expanding his sonic palette to include over 50 different instruments, the most significant of which turned out to be old keyboards like the Mellotron, Chamberlin, Novatron, and Optigan.
 
With its gorgeous execution and uplifting attitude, Paracosm is primed to be this year's summer record. And it promises to do what its name suggests: take listeners to a better world.
 
Paracosm was recorded at in Atlanta with Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out Within and Without) at Maze Studios.
