I’m splitting town for the weekend – driving a hundred miles up the coast to Santa Barbara for a friend’s wedding. Last month this friend turned me on to the South Carolinian bedroom-synth project of Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out. The track was “Feel It All Around,” and it has since made the blog-rounds 100 times over. But don’t confuse this for hype bullshit. This is beautifully executed simple synthedelia that makes no promises it can’t keep. Recorded in a rural section of Georgia, at six tracks, Washed Out’s Life of Leisure EP is now available, digitally, over at Mexican Summer with the vinyl edition dropping next month. I hope we hear more from Greene in 2010.
