Let’s face it — it’s 2012, almost 2013 (if we make it there). In this age of technology and all things plugged, our fascination with the mechanical has supplied us with an abundance of electro-pop music. Which could be anything from Eurthymics to Chromeo to Björk or The Knife, and includes everything in between and on the outskirts. Somewhere within that vast territory — probably riding in the back of a 1950s pastel-colored convertible, wearing Wayfarers — lives Washed Out, the Atlanta-based electro-pop artist deemed by blog junkies as “chillwave,” “glo-fi,” or some other oxymoronic mash-up that’s soon to be passé slang. Ernest Greene, the man behind the alias, employs his own brand of lo-fi retro synth-pop by way of distorted synthesizers, lax beats, smeared vocals and a breezy, vintage disposition. While the highbrow music snob belittles the “hipster” who dares to enjoy this so-called “chillwave,” the truth is — it’s actually really good. It’s simply a revival of what our electronic ancestors did. If you weren’t into that in the first place, then you probably won’t be into this.
