The ever introspective and brooding King Krule prepares his debut album for an August 24 release care of True Panther and XL Recordings. “6 Feet Beneath The Moon” is a 14 track journey that will surely tackle all the feelings and experiences that have riddled his life for the past 18 years. “Easy Easy” is a simple and short tune that clocks in under 3 minutes that is conveys quite a lot with just his vocals and guitar.
Mount Kimbie announces their sophomore LP entitled “Cold Spring Fault Less Youth” out May 28 on Warp Records. It features 2 collaborations with King Krule, a very fitting collaboration for their brand of introspective electronic music. Download a new track titled “Made To Stray” for free here.
King Krule met the devil at the crossroads. It is the only explanation for how this kid is so real.
King Krule is releasing his latest single “Rock Bottom” via Rinse on September 24. “Octopus” is the b-side to the single, a song sounds like it is the theme song for a man that does not get what he wants out of Life and just accepts that he needs to just take it as it comes. It is yet another melancholy anthem from this young talent that hopefully will just pump out more quality music.
King Krule debuts a new single “Rock Bottom” which taps into his deep crooner side. I don’t know nor understand how this young fellow can sound like he has been through so much but he is just able to channel that “been though some tough times” vibes in all his music. The 13 year old middle school jazz band musician in me is so drawn to this track with all its minor 7th chords. Also the tasteful use of the “Amen Break” really touches my early IDM side.
King Krule’s EP has been on repeat for me as we entered into 2012. It is a collection of 5 tunes that clocks in under 13 minutes but showcases this youngin’s musical potential. He channels some serious Pete Dohtery and Joe Strummer vibes. This candid live performance of “Portrait in Black and Blue” shot by my favorite guys from SF, Yours Truly captures all the blues and heartbreak these youths from the UK have to offer.
PS The bassist is playing a Warwick bass which is the most uncool thing you can do but oh well they are young and don’t know better.
