EP: How to Dress Well- Just Once

Experimental r&b has been a prominent part of the blogosphere as of late and among the leaders of that trend is How to Dress Well.  Last year, the project released the acclaimed album Love Remains which found the lo-fi artist in a wave of hype and Tom Krell has decided to follow up that effort with this 4-track EP.  The concept behind the EP is to approach past tracks with an orchestral sound for just this one time.  Gone are the lo-fi beats and in their place is a wash of orchestration and string.  Streaming below is ‘Suicide Dream 3′ which sounds pretty awesome with the fresh approach.  Check out the rest of the EP at his bandcamp.

mp3: Gold Panda- MPB

So I finally have a solid computer to work from so hopefully the drought of music coverage can end!  Gold Panda’s latest track is definitely a worthy track to claim first song ever played on my computer.  On ‘MPB’ Gold Panda steps away from the oriental flavor of his older work and approaches something much more trancey and tropical.  The result is a wonder and can be streamed and downloaded below.
