Washed Out w/Jensen Sportag

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

As Old Man Winter descends upon Nashville, I doubt I could conjure a better bill than one featuring the shoegazing producer/songwriter Ernest Greene — performing with his wife and others as Washed Out — and the ascendant local duo Jensen Sportag. Who else could warm our blood and bones with more groove-oriented mirth? There are few. In August, Washed Out continued its auspicious run with the release of Paracosm, a rich collection of earthy, hypnotic pop that should dispel any notion of Greene as a one-trick chill-waving pony. Paracosm builds on Washed Out’s strengths — the dusty, romantic somnolence, the “Feel It All Around”-isms — and shows the Georgia native to be a competent songwriter too. As for perennial smooth operators Jensen Sportag, well, we can’t stop extolling their immaculate, adventurous debut Stealth of Days, which was just released to the pleasure of experimental pop enthusiasts everywhere. Neither, for that matter, can The Wall Street Journal, Pitchfork, Vogue and many, many others.
