How To Dress Well - "Waking Up To Life Sometimes Seems Worse"
Chicago's own lo-fi R&B crooner How To Dress Well just covered R. Kelly. It sounds...well...pretty much like How To Dress Well covering R. Kelly. Which is to say heartrendingly gorgeous. If there's sensuality here, as R&B almost requires, it's the intimacy with which artist Tom Krell quivers over each note and the cadence in which he sings. Frail and fractured to a frighteningly beautiful degree.
