How to Dress Well / Forest Swords @ Le Poisson Rouge - 3/26/14
How to Dress Well continues to evolve from a maker of chilled-out, reverby R&B to an emotive songwriter, and he's been showing that off on his current tour which sees him playing a bunch of new songs. Joined by a live band, he brought that tour to NYC last Friday (3/21) at Rough Trade NYC for the venue's first night back open, and again at Le Poisson Rouge this past Wednesday (3/26). On stage at LPR, he said that he promised his manager he wouldn't say anything about when a new album comes out, but we're hoping it won't be too long. His tourmate, Forest Swords (also with live accompaniment), opened the show with his psychedelic electronic music which pairs well with HtDW.
The LPR show also included an opening set by drone musician Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Pictures of all three artists are in this post. They continue, with a stream of HtDW's recent single "Words I Don't Remember," below...
