How To Dress Well - Total Loss [album stream]

Brooklyn-based producer and singer Tom Krell, or How To Dress Well, creates elegant, elevated R&B that feels as huge and as overwhelming as the ocean.

Featuring plenty of lovelorn, layered vocals, vast beats, infectious finger-snapping moments throughout ‘& It Was U’ and what sounds like a bottomless homage to Ashanti’s ‘Foolish’ in ‘Running Back’, the album, available now to listen to in full, is packed with playful nods and contradictions, acting as an impassioned love letter to Krell’s musical influences. Clearly a labour of complete devotion, the whole album is far more uplifting and optimistic than its title would suggest.

Stream the album in full via EB, and read more about the process of its creation in Technique: How To Dress Well – Total Loss.

Weird World/Acephale release How To Dress Well’s new album ‘Total Loss’ on 17th September 2012 (18th in the US). How To Dress Well will play a headline gig at London’s XOYO on November 5th.
