Washed Out - New Theory
Mixmaking is an artform - some people make jumbled together, out of order mixes that are as creative as a kindergarten’s fingerpainting project. But some are fine works, crafted meticulously and harmoniously to the ultimate listening experience. Washed Out was on one exceptional Pollock of playlists I received not too long ago.
Washed Out, the stage name for Ernest Greene, is a part of what some call the “chillwave movement” that is happening in music. Washed Out follows the format of Caribou and LCD Soundsystem on a more minimal scale. The song “New Theory” has pop-techno elements that make for a festival favorite.
