XLR8R is many things, but it’s not exactly known as a go-to destination for love jams. (As much as we like the stuff, we admit that there’s nothing particularly sexy about post-dubstep-future-garage bass music.) Nevertheless, if we keep posting tunes from How to Dress Well, maybe our rep can become just a bit steamier. On September 21, he’ll be releasing his debut album, Love Remains. It’s stuffed with slow-burning slices of tender audio, the kind of songs that are perfect for soundtracking a cool-kids make-out session. In the meantime, How to Dress Well (a.k.a Tom Krell) has sent along this new clip for “Ready to the World,” and while the video’s out-of-focus images of what appears to be a man in drag crying during a visit to a ’70s casino don’t exactly scream “let’s get it on,” they do work nicely with the chilly oddity that bubbles beneath the surface of Krell’s silky falsetto.
