How To Dress Well is the musical name of Tom Krell. Pitchfork had it right when they said “his 2010 debut Love Remains didn’t sound like anything else and still doesn’t.” HTDW uses R&B and hip-hop to inform Krell’s moody and classy music. Since his 2010 debut, which collected many of the songs he originally put out for free online, the singer-songwriter released one of the best albums of 2012, Total Loss. On his excellent new album, “What Is This Heart?”, Krell continues to refine his craft with a collection of slow burning, warm and slithery indie-pop/indie-R&B songs.
How To Dress Well performs at District 9ne on Friday, September 19th.
This song is no longer available to download, but you can stream it below. It’s got a groove you can’t run away from, and echoes of early Prince.
