Washed Out

Washed Out is the one-man musical project of Ernest Greene, who creates dreamy, hazy, lo-fi dream-pop in his parent's home in the rural Georgia town where he grew up. He combines drunken synthesizers with all sorts of layered effects, mixing danceable beats and melodies with an 80s throwback feel. It kind of sounds like Ducktails and Neon Indian had a baby.

Washed Out has released a couple of limited-run EPs via Mexican Summer and Mirror Universe, but those songs will eventually be put out on a larger scale. He says he has no plans to go out on tour, but is thinking of doing SXSW next year. Get your hands on the Life of Leisure EP, every song is a hit.
