Washed Out?s debut album, Within and Without was one of the defining chillwave records for the 2010s and for the genre as a whole. Many people know of this genre because of it?s relaxing and easily qualities to it (i.e. it?s what made lo-fi hip-hop into a genre). However, many artists can never fully pull it off without sounding cheese or uninspired. Ernest Greene on his sophomore record made another solid chillwave record, although it was grabbing at the same ideas as his previous. From their he came out with a new chillwave style with Mister Mellow in 2017 and it was a great EP/LP with neo-psychedelia vibes and plunderphonic undertones. On his most recent release he goes back to a more basic sound, however it doesn?t really grab at what chillwave is today. It is a rather bland and one-dimensional album (other than the opening track ?Too Late?). Ever since George Clanton?s Slides came out chillwave will never be the same and this album is suffering from that problem.

A bit of a return to form after the experimental and more soulful feel of Mister Mellow, Purple Noon isn’t going to
blow you away. But the aesthetics of his signature chillwave sound from his earlier albums are given a subtle
change into a more straight electronic pop sound, varied textured instrumentals and dare I say, slightly more
cleared up vocals? Another album to make you dream of living the isolated beach life because going to one is a
terrible idea when people don’t know how to socially distance.
