Review // Washed Out – Paracosm

washed outWeird World // 12th August

Clearly harshed out by critics that knocked his languid debut ‘Within And Without’ for floating in one ear and out the other rather too readily, Ernest Greene has hit back with an album of start to finish club bangers, influenced mostly by chart-topping dance trio Swedish House Mafia. Alright, you got us. ‘Paracosm’ is more of the same: an immaculately-produced set of elevator-ready chillwave snoozers for those who prefer their haircuts asymmetrical and their Starbucks to come with extra foam. But don’t feel bad, Washed Out is so slick that criticism slides right off him without leaving any hard feelings.
