Editorial Reviews

A true pioneer of genre-bending, Germany via U.S. artist How to Dress Well has been garnering endless crossover support from both the indie rock and hip-hop worlds. His style has been dubbed 'lo-fi R&B'. Love Remains is the debut full length following up a 7'' released in July 2010 aptly titled Ready For The World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I've heard all year! September 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific album; something that can be listened to in its entirety - front to back - repeatedly. The mix of sensual R&B and lo-fi digital aesthetics is strongly compelling to me. I don't understand why the harsh clipping that envelops many of these tracks is considered a sour point with many reviewers. Not being an R&B fan myself, I think Love Remains would be a lot less interesting without such artifacts. Yeah, perhaps he can simply adjust his levels, but the atmosphere would be considerably diminished in my opinion.

Even among Tri Angle's catalog, this album stands out for its genuine tenderness, fragility and simple, effective delivery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not What I was Hoping For November 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Between songs posted to the artist's blog and Pitchfork's fawning praise, I expected the songs on the cd to match, if not exceed the loveliness of "Suicide Dream 2" and "You Won't Need Me Where I'm Going." I expected the distorted/ clipping vocal levels were either something that would be cleaned up with a proper release or particular to those tracks. Instead the opening track "You Hold The Water" shows a poor attempt at the low grade quality of early Guided By Voices 4 track recordings. But with today's technology, even the most basic home recordings can avoid such poor distortion and computers do not have the warm feel of analogue tape when it comes to distortion. What one is left with is a few tracks that are unlistenable such as the opener and "My Body".
The second track "Ready For The World" shows a bit more respect for the listener with tracks that retain the haunting quality of "2" and "You Won't Me" with only a bit of the speaker straining gimmicks in the beat. (A bit like having large condor wings flapping in the ears.) Of course, the distorted vocals and a crackling whistle make it half way through which, I suppose, could be the artist using his recording studio as an instrument.
Obviously the artist is using the trend of those such as Burial with a bit of buried glitch in the purposeful low-fi sound.
Far from making the collection a wreck, it is one that requires being taken in small doses - at least until the ears and the mind adjust to the intentional levels in the red.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Contender November 19, 2010
By Xanamax
Format:Audio CD
This is a soundscape of stoner astral planes and chill wave beats. It has rhythmic beats and emotions that are both hypnotic and make you wanna rub your face into a fluffy faux velvet pillow. HTDW is Tom Krell.R&B mixer and philosophy student from Cologne Germany. That makes you wanna say, oh wait yes, this album is definitely Euro. Not so at all, it's better then just dubbing it euro chill wave/electro whatever crap, because I know what youre thinking -bad things....This has a life of its own but it might be different from what people were used to from Krells blog, in all honesty. I still love this friggin album.

Notable tracks:
Lover's Start
Ready For The World
Mr. By and By
Suicide Dreams 2

Other HTDW worth checking out: "HTDW-Ecstasy With Jojo"
