How to Dress Well, Beacon, Hustle and Drone

REED JACKSON
9 pm., Friday December 07 | $12.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[GHOST R&B] The genre of ’90s R&B has many wonderful qualities: It’s heartfelt and polished, and features some booming choruses. One thing it is not, however, is subtle. That’s where producer How to Dress Well (real name: Tom Krell) has made his niche. Krell sucks the life out of ’90s R&B, creating songs with similar lyrics but built on ghostly backdrops and reverb-drenched vocals. It’s a remorseful and harsh take on the glitz and glam of the decade, but it has a similar purpose to the genre, in that it establishes a tone of heartbreak. That ache goes two ways when Krell decides to combine his breakup lyrics with actual samples of ’90s groups like INOJ, a cold slab of nostalgia to make you realize how long ago that time really was.
