HOW TO DRESS WELL (USA) LIVE

Tom Krell makes ghostly, lo-fi R&B under the moniker How to Dress Well, a name he stumbled upon and adopted as his own in a Minneapolis bookstore in 2004. As a little boy, Krell loved late-80s and early-90s R&B artists including Keith Sweat and Ready for the World, however in high school he played in various metal and hardcore bands, then switched to making drone-based music in his twenties.

Krell made live experimental music by looping layers of his voice while he was living in Brooklyn, but it was when he moved to Cologne, Germany and collaborated with the likeminded artist cokc dokc that he began recording under that name. Krell blended his childhood love of R&B with the abstract noise of Black Dice, filtering it all through lo-fi recording techniques. He released the first How to Dress Well EP, The Eternal Love, in October 2009 as a free download via his blog, and more EPs followed at the rate of about one per month through April 2010.

Krell signed to Lefse Records, which released his first official single, Ready for the World, in July 2010 and How to Dress Well's debut album, Love Remains, that October to critical acclaim from such music authorities as Pitchfork, Spin Magazine, Fronteir Psychiatrist and more.
