King Krule's highly anticipated debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, isn't set for release until the 24th of August 24 via True Panther and XL but Archy has treated fans to a premature listen. The young talent has been developing a lot of hype since the release of his self-titled EP, and the long player is promising a mature sound. It was produced by the man himself, along with Savages/the xx collaborator Rodaidh McDonald.
Teaming up with the young and talented King Krule, Mount Kimbie offer up "You Took Your Time" from their forthcoming album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. The duo offer up the jazz like drums while Krule's croon carries every bit of the track forward. The James Blake type sounds of the beat paired up with the vocal kind of reminds me of The Streets in a way. I think all of us at SKoA just have a longing for Mike Skinner to return to his former self. However, I've found it hard not to enjoy anything Archy touches and this track is no different. Check out his mesmerizing part in this collaboration below.
Cold Spring Fault Less Youth is due out May 28th via Warp Records.
It's fair to say Angel Haze has been making waves across the internet in recent months and she's showing no signs of slowing down and has just dropped a brand new mixtape titled Classick which you pick up a copy below. The tape sees her stepping up and reworking tracks by the likes of Eminem, Jay-Z and one I saw she was pretty nervous about on twitter, Lauryn Hill.
As well as the mixtape, King Krule has offered up a nice rework of her track "New York". He too is definitely gaining momentum at the moment. In recent months we've got to enjoy two new tracks from him in the shape of "Octopus" and "Rock Bottom", both raw yet very much repeat worthy. For his latest escapade he's taken on Angel Haze's "New York" and slowed it down a little giving it a different yet equally intriguing listen. Check it out below.
Why not check out some brand new music from King Krule which follows up the great sounding "Rock Bottom" that we heard in August. The track is the AA-Side to that and features some sensual saxophone work. I'm always open to a bit of saxophone if I'm being totally honest, I just wish I could play one. Although I probably wouldn't use my new found talent like this guy.
It's been a while since we heard from the bluesy tones of King Krule. Last time we got to enjoy the young talent was after the release of his self-titled EP late last year. Today he returns with a brand new track titled "Rock Bottom" which is set to be released on the 25th of September via Rinse. Skittish drums and bright guitars are set alongside his signature vocals resulting in a very welcome return. Check it out below.
King Krule had a hot year in 2011 culminating in some performacne at CMJ, it also included a name change and a release on True Panther Sounds. Yours Truly recently caught up with the young talent whilst he was in the states to capture him performing a track from that very release. Peep him doing his thing to "Portrait in Black and Blue" whilst in Brooklyn, NY. Hat tip to Disco Naïveté for this little gem.
You can't help but be intrigued by King Krule. The youngster made his CMJ debut this year and is going from strength to strength and to add to the snowballing he has now offered up the visuals for the track "The Noose of Jah City". The simple video sits very nicely along this light and bright track which features on the self-tilted EP which is out now via True Panther.
If you like what you hear why not go pick up his EP over here.
Young gun Archy Marshal has undergone a name change from Zoo Kid to King Krule and is set to release a self-tilted EP on November 7th in the UK (8th in US) via True Panther. Below you can preview what he's all about with a track titled "The Nooze of Jah City". Delicate guitar and drum beats with a reverb filled vocal add for a nice lazy Monday morning listen.
If you're at CMJ next week in NY he'll be playing the True Panther Sounds gig at Glasslands, Brooklyn on the 19th of Oct or the Fader Fort CMJ party, in NYC on the 21st.
