How To Dress Well – Total Loss (Album Review)

Submitted by / 7 years ago / Album Reviews

Total Loss - How To Dress Well

How To Dress Well isn’t a mens fashion guide for sartorial gentleman but the stage name of experimental producer and singer Tom Krell. “Total Loss“, How To Dress Well’s sophomore album heavily regards the death and devastation which has run rife throughout his family. Total Loss isn’t a collection of tracks but a soundtrack of memories.

The album exudes pain which serves as an ethereal form of escapism, yet still retains its core message, which earths us to a stark reality. Total Loss follows the typical electronic format of using sampling and synthesised sounds, yet the mix of various genres coupled with his phantasmal falsettos puts him into the category of ‘cant be boxed’.
