Washed Out: “Time to Walk Away”

By: Jack Anderson

Ten years down the line in his career as Washed Out, keyboardist-vocalist Ernest Greene Jr. continues to champion an ever-evolving chillwave sound. The Atlanta-based auteur has been averaging at about one record every three to four years, rounding out this most recent cycle of creativity with Washed Out‘s fourth LP Purple Noon.

Purple Noon finds Greene sifting through familiar tides of indie funk fusion, dream pop, and hip-hop-influenced psychedelia with a sense of beach-read, market-ripe freshness throughout. Washed Out certainly won’t be getting diluted anytime soon, so top off your weekend with his Soundfounder interview, airing at 2PM today and again on Soundfounder’s Saturday night show at 1AM. And as you wade out of the work week, soak up some of the midday mauve on Purple Noon with one of its brightest highlights, “Time to Walk Away”!

Their unique placement of feminine falsettos over seductive, sample-and-synth-heavy soundscapes still inspires acts today, not just in the […]

Beekeeper Spaceman: “Locusts and Honey”

We’re so over the moon from yesterday’s Lunar Gold premiere that we’re not ready to descend quite yet. So before touching down to the terrestrial for the weekend, let’s heed a far out beacon from Dallas duo Beekeeper Spaceman. The skeleton crew consists of guitarist-singer-songwriter Greg Brownderville and producer/multi-instrumentalist Spencer Kenney, who named themselves after […]

Lunar Gold: “Low Light”

Even though it’ll always be a nightly main attraction, the moon’s also been a hot topic thanks to recent international missions, both successes or failures. But of course, for every state-funded effort, there’s a private space venture in the hands of a billionaire. Which begs a question. Once corporations capitalize the moon, how much of […]
