Three years ago this month I got my hands on a little EP titled Life Of Leisure by Washed Out, the lo-fi electronic bedroom project of Ernest Greene. I pumped a few tracks on my KRCL program and started noticing the listeners were interested in hearing more. Well, thanks to the brilliantly funny comedy series Portlandia, for using Washed Out’s track ‘Feel It All Around’ as the opening theme and sending him down a road to indie success. In 2011 Washed Out signed to Seattle’s Sub Pop label and released the solid album Within Without.
Thursday, September 20th, Washed Out will return to SLC. The fist time through was a sold out show. This time around will be close to a sell out.
