The overnight success of Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out, is a sign of the times. A 20-something with a degree in library science and no job prospects, the rural Georgia native moved back home with his parents to save money. Between e-mailing resumes he posted some drowsy dance tracks to his MySpace page and they accidently went viral, leading to his synthed-out Life of Leisure EP and a sold-out CMJ show in Brooklyn that fall. But his real intro came in 2010 when he embarked on a tour that included a pilgrimage to SXSW. In its wake, a cat-and-mouse battle ensued between hipster blogs du jour, which declared him the darling of chillwave, and that gray lady the New York Times, which labeled him and his kind "annoyingly noncommittal" for their revamped '80s electropop. Since we last heard, Greene is no longer living with his parents.
