How to Dress Well sounds like the title of a fashion blog that I would totally read…In reality, it’s the stage name of Tom Krell, a bad-ass experimental producer and singer known for a his unique, ethereal sound. I’ve been following this guy for a minute now; In the past couple of years, his debut album Love Remains (cop this) and his sophomore album Total Loss (cop that) have both received a lot of buzz in the blogosphere and, as a result, his songs have been recipients of some pretty sweet remixes. Cold Nites, the second track off the Total Loss album, has already been remixed by Koreless and Pete Swanson but the most recent treatment of this song by English singer-songwriter Charli XCX has to be my favorite of the three. Charli XCX adds angry talk-rapping and pretty vocals to this haunting track and really makes it her own.
This is one of eight songs off of her recently dropped Super Ultra mixtape. Regarding this mixtape, Charli said:
I don’t want people to be sad when they listen to Super Ultra… I want them to be happy, and I want them to dance. No one dances in this town anymore.
