Ernest Greene of Washed Out on how drums bring a different energy to the live show

Washed Out (due Thursday, April 26, at the Bluebird Theater) started out as a bedroom project of Ernest Greene when he was living in Perry, Georgia. As with many artists in the last decade or so, Perry connected with other independent musicians through the Internet, where he posted music to MySpace, and from there, Greene's highly textured, synth-driven pop songs quickly caught on in the blogosphere. Greene capitalized on the buzz, releasing two EPs (2009's High Times and 2010's Life of Leisure) and developed an evolving live show that now includes a full band.
