When: Fri., Sept. 6, 9 p.m. 2013

For Ernest Greene—the Georgia-based musician behind the dreamy soundscapes of Washed Out—the idea of creating an imaginary universe comes to full fruition on his second full-length, Paracosm. Digital beats swim through analog oceans on watery tunes like the appropriately named "Weightless," as Greene draws out syllables, elongates cadence, and forges a temporary fantasyland of swarming sounds. The album's second single, "Don't Give Up," blips in at a different clip, pouncing disco-tinged pulses over swirling synth for a dance-heavy jam that's just as stony-sounding as the rest of the album. Is it music to zone out to? Totally. But there are enough temporal parameters to keep you moving, and there are few artists of the chillwave persuasion composing as compelling a mesh of noises as Washed Out. RYAN J. PRADO
