How to Dress Well, Grouper and Golden Retriever 

When: Sun., Feb. 27, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $10
Liz Harris, better known as Grouper, has two new albums in the works. Dream Loss and Alien Observer were both recorded over the past four years, with Dream Loss collecting some of Harris' older songs and Alien Observer focusing on the aftermath of a difficult time in Harris' life. The two records are meant to be of a piece, halves of the same whole, and they'll be out on vinyl and MP3 in April. Tonight she shares a bill with How to Dress Well, the strange project of Brooklyn's Tom Krell, who records washed-out, blurry pop songs that echo with R&B's yearning, often delivered in keening falsetto. The music of How to Dress Well is lumpy, elusive, broken-sounding, and—more often than not—staggeringly gorgeous. It's a perfect counterpart to the similarly waterlogged sounds of Grouper, whose chilly flicker might be beamed in from the same ethereal plane as the hot bath of How to Dress Well. NED LANNAMANN
