Now Hear This: The Lush Gorgeousness of Washed Out

Luxuriant. Hypnotic. Dreamy. Ernest Greene, better known as Washed Out, creates music that’s practically tactile — that feels like sliding into a warm bath or maybe lying in the surf on a deserted beach.

Even with a certain amount of programming and sequencing, it’s almost unimaginable that he can recreate the kind of deeply layered soundscapes he achieves on record in a live setting, but it turns out he can.

Chez Pazienza was the beating heart of The Daily Banter, sadly passing away on February 25, 2017. His voice remains ever present at the Banter, and his influence as powerful as ever.
