Washed Out Ice Cream Flavor, DJ Sets, Pool Parties, and ‘Paracosm’ Listening Party


Washed Out have scheduled a few very special Paracosm pre-release events to be held in Brooklyn and New York this week.

On Friday, August 2nd, Brooklyn ice cream artisans OddFellows will premiere their exclusive collaboration with Washed Out for their new “Paracosm” flavor. A first of it’s kind, Washed Out and Odd Fellows worked together to create a homemade rose-tinged raspberry ice cream that will be given to fans free from 4-8pm. Washed Out’s Ernest Greene will be on hand for the launch, and Paracosm (the album) will be played in the store throughout the day. Exclusive Washed Out merchandise will also be available in the store. No RSVP necessary. Odd Fellows is located at 175 Kent Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249.

On Sunday, August 4th, Ernest will perform a DJ set at his inaugural Washed Out Pool Party, at Manhattan’s Thompson LES Hotel. The party will run 2-8pm, is free to fans via RSVP, and will feature opening DJ sets by Chrome Sparks, Small Black, and Lemonade. For more details on how to RSVP for the event, click here.

Washed Out will release Paracosm, the follow up to his critically-acclaimed debut album, Within and, on CD, LP and digitally on August 12th in UK & Europe via Weird World and in North America on August 13th via our fine label, Sub Pop Records (and t-shirts!). “Paracosm”, led by the singles “It All Feels Right,” “Don’t Give Up” and “All I Know”, was recorded by Ernest Greene with returning producer Ben Allen in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia.
