How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell and Elite Gymnastics’ James Brooks are two Midwestern bedroom-studio auteurs who think hard about music that a whole lot of people regard as complete piffle and who twist that music into emotive, insightful music of their own. They are natural fits for one another. Back in 2011, How To Dress Well covered Elite Gymnastics’ “Here In Heaven.” Now, Elite Gymnastics have done something similar, turning “& It Was U,” the disco-flavored highlight of How To Dress Well’s great Total Loss album, into something even dancier, a lush and loopy club jam. Download the remix and the original track below.
Total Loss is out now on Acéphale.
