HOW TO DRESS WELL

Co-produced by Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Airbird), this record plays as a single continuous piece of 21st century psychedelic music and features Krell’s most bewitching sound experimentation to date. Moreover, the stories Krell sings on this record – some biographical, many from the most knotted corners of human life – are deeply personal and human(e). The Anteroom - with its blizzardous electronic noise, fragile melodies and poignant poetry - reclaims the experimental core of the HTDW project.

How To Dress Well - AKA Tom Krell - releases his fourth album, ‘Care’, via Weird World / Domino.

Written by Krell, mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.) and featuring co-production from Krell alongside Jack Antonoff, Dre Skull, CFCF and Kara- Lis Coverdale, ‘Care’ is a sensual, dazzling alt-pop tour de force.

‘Care’ is the next step in the evolution of Krell’s sound, which began with his first critically-lauded album, ‘Love Remains’, in 2010 and continued up through his widely acclaimed previous album, ‘What Is This Heart?’, released in 2014.

How To Dress Well is the stage name of songwriter and producer Tom Krell.

His debut album ‘Love Remains’ was widely praised for both its conceptual strength and immediate emotional resonance, and saw Krell credited with having given birth to a new, narcotized strain of R&B that has since spawned a host of imitators.

Now we see him pull back the curtain on a whole new body of work with his new album ‘Total Loss’, released on Weird World and co-produced by Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule).

STAFF COMMENTS

Philippa says: Following his Tri Angle LP outing, How To Dress Well is back with more of his post-R&B, slow-fi, synthwave-tinted melancholic pop.

After two outstanding EPs in 2010 by Balam Acab and oOoOO, Tri Angle release their first long player! How To Dress Well (aka Tom Krell) is set to be one of the breakthrough artists of 2011 with a crossover appeal pitched somewhere between Burial and Panda Bear.

The album, consisting of tracks which initially emerged in the form of online EPs How To Dress Well distributed from his website, is a beautifully evocative listening experience which re-imagines How To Dress Well’s passion for commercial R&B as something spectral and haunting, utilizing the kinds of harmonies one might find on records by 90s R&B luminaries such as Shai and Bobby Brown, as well as his own astounding vocal talents, to create heartbreaking lo-fi hymnals, which occupy the emotional grey space between hopeful and hopeless. As an album "Love Remains" signals the arrival of an innovative artist who has rightfully been tipped as one of this years most exciting breakout acts.
