CURRENT: How To Dress Well – “Words I Don’t Remember”

Tom Krell quietly helped usher in one of the predominate sounds in music in the 2010’s with his brand of minimalist, electronica-infused R&B, brought to a larger audience by the likes of Miguel, Frank Ocean, Autre Ne Veut and Jessie Ware. His last album, 2012’s Total Loss, was a gorgeous pathos-driven work, and the first single from his forthcoming, thus far untitled third LP, “Words I Don’t Remember,” is a natural progression from his exquisite prior works.

From the earnest opening to his beautifully distorted vocals to the cathartic and definitive outro, each turn is perfectly timed, leading to maximum affect. When Krell sings “You know that I love you, baby,” you get the feeling those words are just as much for him as for who they’re sung to.
