Album Stream: SPIN Fave Washed Out

Hear 'Within and Without,' the debut from Breaking Out electro mastermind Ernest Greene.

William Goodman // June 28, 2011

Georgia’s Washed Out, aka synth-pop musician Ernest Greene, is on the rise: The Sub Pop signee’s debut full-length, Within and Without, is one of SPIN’s highest rated albums of the year so far, and a feature on Green appears in our July issue. The LP is set to drop on July 12 — but you can hear the full album now, courtesy of NPR.

SPIN’s nine-out-of-10 album review praises Within and Without’s wistful, floating-in-the-clouds sound, recorded with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), which provides the most accessible strain of the “chillwave” sound popularized by Panda Bear, thanks to hints of ’80s radio pop and ’90s trip-hop.
