Of all the chillwavers influenced by Panda Bear's Person Pitch who emphasized "beach" over "boys," Ernest Greene became the most ubiquitous, his dreamy "Feel It All Around" spreading from Williamsburg boutiques to Portlandia. For his full-length debut, Greene teams with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) to revisit his '80s reveries, crafting Balearic bliss ("Eyes Be Closed") and refreshing New Romantic flounce ("Amor Fati"). He even invigorates '90s trip-hop's head-nod ("Before," the title track), making for an even better coast soundtrack.
