Critical Mass

by Marc Hogan

Hazy nostalgia may have been the indie world's richest musical resource lately (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Wild Nothing), but a long-overdue embrace of R&B has certainly been another (the xx, Dirty Projectors). As How to Dress Well, Tom Krell marries these two muses, conjuring fractured memories of Shai or TLC, mostly using his otherworldly falsetto. Also: reverb. But don't expect the sex-intelligence quotient of The-Dream. This debut is a different kind of soul music, as meditative as it is evocative.
