On Sunday morning, Tom Krell, a.k.a. How To Dress Well, woke up “super hungover”, no doubt regretting the pyramid of Jager shots that closed the previous night. But rather than mope around eating fast food and watching season four of Gilmore Girls, he whipped up a fun, 45-minute mix humorously dubbed, “I Think Life Might Be Elsewhere (Hangover Mix)”.
Along with music by M.I.A. and Saves The Day, it features a new Ryan Hemsworth edit of Future’s “Honest” and — here’s the best part — Krell singing Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor”, and Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”. Listen to the entire mix below.
Krell described the mix’s aesthetic value:
ok i woke up super hungover today and made this mix of songs :+)
i felt like singing, but i didn’t have the energy to do anything but lay in bed and sing into the macbook mic
it’s super noisy and there’s a lot of fucked noise and shit in it
it’s like a mix of songs that soothe and punish kinda idk really
ryan sent me his song on gchat like 5 mins after i woke up it made everything really better he is the sweetest guy around
hope you like the mix xoxoxoxxxxx
