News: Washed Out announces sophomore album

Following up his critically-acclaimed debut Within and Without, Ernest Greene – AKA Washed Out – now announces his second album, Paracosm, to be released on August 12th via Weird World. Named after the phenomenon whereby people create intricate imaginary worlds, such as Tolkein’s Middle Earth and C.S Lewis’s Narnia, the atmosphere of the album is appropriately dreamy, with escapism-inspired lyrics to match. However, don’t expect a simple ‘Within and Without Part II’. Paracosm sees Greene expanding his sonic horizons as well as those of his imagination, employing over 50 different instruments (50!!!) including old keyboards such as the Mellotron, Chamberlin, Novatron, and Optigan, which will have music nerds everywhere drooling.

Paracosm will be available for pre-order soon. In the meantime, tantalize your ears and eyes with this album trailer.
