The experimental, dreamy R&B project known as How To Dress Well hasn't always been a favorite of mine. If I remember correctly, my review of its debut album was pretty negative. If there was anything I came away liking from the album, it was the musical vision singer-producer Tom Krell was going for. I just wished the recording quality was better.
How To Dress Well now has a new album on the way titled Total Loss. it's dropping in September, and the recording quality sounds noticeably better this time around. I mean, damn, yeah, it's sounding glossy, atmospheric, and lush.
Yeah, Krell's constant falsetto over spacious instrumentation won't be for everyone, but it is for me--or at least I think that given the beautiful track streaming above.
