Elite Gymnastics - H E R E I N H E A V E N 3 (Cover by How To Dress Well)

Tom Krell, pulverised R&B matinee idol, covers the orchestral pomp of Elite Gynastics.

In grace, two figures emerge from the informational mists, wandering like the ancients, with the voices of new borns. A connection is made, a pause in the drift, a moment held, a truth glimpsed, before the cloaks rise, and the march continues through the marsh.

Tom Krell of How To Dress Well has covered Here In Heaven by the Minneapolis band Elite Gymnastics’ forthcoming-on-Acephale EP, ‘Ruin’. Funnily enough, this is actually the third version of the track available – the first was a mournful ‘ardkore banger (the only sort of ‘ardkore banger, IMO), the second a faded work of beauty. You can stream Tom’s version here, and compare it to the original below.
