Published Jun 27, 2018Nearly two years on from his Care LP, How to Dress Well (a.k.a. Tom Krell) has returned with a new two-track EP.
Titled Land of the Overflowing Urn, the effort arrives through Domino and is available to stream in the players below. The EP features two tracks: a seven-minute opus titled "Vacant Boat (shred) | Nonkilling 1 | The Anteroom | False Skull 1" and an extended, standalone version of "The Anteroom" segment.
Krell wrote the following about the effort's genesis in an Instagram post:
I can pinpoint a moment when the next phase of the HTDW workshop really crystallized for me. About a year ago I was on a "journey" and I saw myself standing in what I thought, at first, was knee-deep snow, but it turned out to be ash — the ashen remnants of everything that has ever lived and ever will live on this earth. I have the distinct memory of saying to myself: 'This is the Land of the Overflowing Urn.' The passage of music I'm releasing today — a collage of sounds and ideas — and what will come in the near future, is connected to my experience of this overflow.
