Washed Out

"Paracosm"

Producers: Ernest Greene, Ben Allen

Sub Pop Records

Release Date: Aug. 13

A paracosm is an imaginary world created by children. And in its best moments, the sophomore set by Ernest Greene (aka Washed Out), manifests such a place, with its own sunny atmosphere and idyllic vistas. An improvement on his chilly debut, Paracosm brings warm, acoustic instruments into the fold, signaling a more ambitious direction. -Reggie Ugwu
