The initial offerings of bedroom producer Ernest Greene as Washed Out -- astonishing EPs like 2009's Life of Leisure and High Times -- were drowsy, distorted, dance pop-influenced tracks that brought to mind Neon Indian and Memory Cassette. After a string of high-profile appearances everywhere from the Pitchfork Festival to the TV series Portlandia, he signed to Sub Pop and released his first full-length, 2011's Within and Without. Influenced by a wider range of vintage synths, 2013's Paracosm was much warmer and optimistic sounding. ~ Margaret Reges
