How to Dress Well
It's a good time to be in the murky bedroom-R&B business. With introspective and hazy recordings from the likes of Frank Ocean and the Weeknd making surprisingly huge mainstream waves, don't be surprised if many more brokenhearted dudes with falsetto-friendly windpipes and Casios wind up on major-label rosters. Few of them will be as good as How to Dress Well, the nom de plume of Colorado's Tom Krell. A grad student research fellow who knows how to get down, Krell creates spectral electro-soul that sounds like Sade's lo-fi second cousin on his excellent sophomore album, Total Loss. A rare opportunity to spot hipsters slow-grinding in public. With Beacon, Seyah, Katy Morley. 18+. (Photo by Jesse Lirola)
