Album Note - How to Dress Well: Love Remains

As you can see by this note on an October release, I'm still behind on my commentary from the September lull. But I hope to be more current by December. I've posted about How to Dress Well before and now find myself with similar comments about his full-length album. The high marks by the critics are justified and my impressions are unchanged from before -- love the mysticism (including the part where he for some reason is identified with R&B; the ethereal part I understand),  mystified by the adherence to the low-fi techniques.Cool and eerie and a bit annoying.

Pitchfork: Album Reviews: How to Dress Well: Love Remains 8.7/10.0 (best new music designation)
