How To Dress Well tops the Hype Machine's most blogged artists charts on August 20, while Satellite Stories take second place.
How To Dress Well (HTDW) is the stage name of experimental pop producer and singer Tom Krell; under his pseudonym, Krell has just dropped a chilled out and ethereal cover of Janet Jackson's hit track "Again" from her 1993 album Janet. The cover appears on a limited edition 7" that fans receive when pre-ordering HTDW's forthcoming album Total Loss from either Acéphale or Weird World. Electronic Music And More describes HTDW's cover as "turn[ing] Janet Jackson's Again [into] amazing romantic lo-fi sound."
In second place are Finnish band Satellite Stories whose track "Anti-Lover" has just been remixed by Ryan Riot; the remix has been well received with author of blog ALTROZON, who went as far as to say "I prefer the remix."
