Appropriately, Washed Out’s performance at Headliners happened on a particularly mild evening for November. Perhaps Ernest summoned such warm vibes. Or perhaps it was the heat emanating from the sold out crowd. Or perhaps it was the booze. Each and every Washed Out show seems to be different. He performed with a different band than his last show in town at Forecastle 2012. And compared to his Midpoint Music Festival show in Cincinnati in 2011, Washed Out has become significantly less disco and ‘everyone clap your hands now,’ and more interested in the explorations into the intricate vintage synth layers Ernest Greene masterfully assembles. Ernest and Company still bolsters a solid, dance-heavy live show, but with enough sonic nuance and experimentation to win over more discriminating ears.

    Saw them on this tour about 2 1/2 weeks earlier and I love the chilled direction they’re going in…not that I don’t like all out dance parties. Really nicely weaved together synth atmospheres

    Kenny, the list of your favourite albums in the year is so much missed.
    Any intention of comeback?
    Any recommendation? (I mean, of an album, no “search another blog”)
