Washed Out, aka Ernest Greene, at Fortune Sound Club Tuesday night, as part of his extended late summer and fall tour. The tour is in support of the latest Washed Out album, Paracosm.

The Sub Pop album debuted at no. 21 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and features the singles “It All Feels Right” and “Don’t Give Up”. Paracosm has earned praise from the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stone, Billboard, AV Club, The Guardian, Vogue, Pitchfork, Q, Mojo, Uncut, and more.

Video – Washed Out, “Don’t Give Up”:

Praise for Paracosm:

“It’s a realm of leisurely melodies and keyboard chords that wash in and drift away, of calm vocal harmonies and burbling electronics, of lavishly blended acoustic and electronic instruments and echoes of reassuring pop from past eras…Paracosm sounds warmer, more enveloping; precisely because it’s so much more spacious, it’s cozier.” - New York Times

“The perfect record for the lazy weeks of summer–a sun-dappled, intricately layered, indie pop beauty.” - Entertainment Weekly

“Greene’s meticulous creations are still slow-rolling and thickly layered, but this time he and returning Animal Collective producer Ben Allen slather on less futuristic sounds: Mellotron, bongos, children laughing. Harplike arpeggios herald the beginning of the title track like the launch of a Technicolor reverie, but the nine-song LP’s dreamiest tune is ‘All I Know’, a nostalgic stunner that glows like a jar of fireflies.” [Review, 3.5/5 Stars] –Rolling Stone
