How to Dress Well "Take It On"
Exactly when did every hipster in the world figure out that R&B was cool? We're not complaining about the music being turned out by people like Tom Krell (a.k.a. How to Dress Well), but it is kind of funny to see every kid with an asymmetrical haircut and cutoffs lose their shit over this the same way they would if The Arcade Fire and The xx teamed up to make an album of Arthur Russell covers. On a serious note, "Take It On" is a blissfully ghostly slice of R&B, which almost sounds like a lo-fi take on a Sade track. It's taken from a 7" single that's dropping this month, but Krell's debut full-length album, Love Remains, will be released September 21 on the Lefse label. (via FADER)
