Listen: How To Dress Well, “Ecstasy With Jojo” and “Take It On”


How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell sure is peaking at the right time: a new album, Love Remains, out in September on Lefse; a Brooklyn homecoming and HTDW debut at Glasslands this Friday; and, kind of suddenly, a “double A side” 7″ single from Transparent Records, on which Krell continues a burgeoning tradition of interpolating other people’s songs (“Can’t See My Own Face” nods at Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”; “These Visions” riffs on Kanye’s “Welcome to Heartbreak”) by splicing a bit of MJ’s “Baby Be Mine” into new single “Ecstasy of Jojo.” The other A side, “Take It On,” is more of a muttering, spooky, slow-burner. Together, they’re two of the best tracks in Krell’s rapidly growing discography–hear them both at Transparent or, presumably, live this Friday:
