Blogosphere favorites Shlohmo and How to Dress Well have combined forces on “Don’t Say No.” I’m a bit surprised I didn’t hear the sound of the internet exploding when this one hit Soundcloud.

It is, by and large, precisely what you’d expect, with Shlohmo bringing the murky-sexy-soul atmosphere and Tom Krell packing the aching and, by the end, soaring nu-R&B vocals. The track’s slow build, subtly shifting instrumentation, and quietly blistering outro feel like steps forward for both parties, however, a potential sum greater than the whole of the parts situation spurred on by the union of mostly-formed talents still finding room for the growth and polish that collaboration can promote.

Shlohmo’s Laid Out EP comes out 3/4. Check out “Don’t Say No” below.
