Within And Without
the debut album proper from the atlanta, georgia based producer & songwriter ernest greene. his first release, 2009’s home recorded 'life of leisure ep', became an instant hit with us & critics alike & inspired legions of imitators & several dubious new genres along the way. 2 years in the making, 'within & without', recorded with ben allen (animal collective, deerhunter), is the full realisation of greene’s hypnagogic pop vision – 9 songs of emotional, immersive psychedelic dance music that is almost orchestral in its composition. wonderfully hazy, tripped out comedown music for fans of other purveyors of this distinctive keyboard-based sound, such as memory tapes, neon indian & toro y moi. “what ‘within & without’ most recalls is something taped off the radio in 1984, songs glimpsed through layers of medium wave interference & tape hiss…lithe & sensual” 4/5 – guardian.
