Willow Smith – “Easy Easy” (King Krule Cover)

Willow Smith has been pretty quiet in the music world since 2011’s “Whip My Hair” took the world by storm, but the 13-year-old has spent the past few years refining her taste, from sampling Radiohead to joining up-and-comer SZA on stage. Now, she’s released a cover of King Krule’s “Easy Easy” from his debut album… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I didn’t write this column last week, since SXSW was just about monopolizing my attention. So we’ve got two weeks’ worth of videos to sort through here. But for whatever reason, it was still a bit of a struggle to come up with five really good videos. Part of the reason, of course, is the… More »

RATKING (Feat. King Krule) – “So Sick Stories” Video

The trio known as RATKING are a hip-hop group, but as an early collaboration with Eric Copeland (Black Dice) and the recent single “Canal” have shown, they definitely lean more toward the experimental side of things a la groups like Death Grips and clipping. Their newest video is for the track “So Sick Stories,” their… More »

King Krule – “Neptune Estate (Travi$ Scott Remix)”

“Neptune Estate” was one of the more mellow cuts from King Krule’s already mellow 6 Feet Beneath The Moon — but it’s not so mellow anymore. Houston rapper Travi$ Scott has dropped a remix that incorporates the main melodic line from the original, a simple piano figure that rises hopefully before nestling back down into… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I didn’t do one of these columns last week, since there were almost no music videos. At this point, the music industry has stretched and woken up, a few big albums and mixtapes have come out, a lot more are on the way, and the holiday lull is officially over. This has not yet spread… More »

King Krule – “A Lizard State” Video

King Krule’s new video for “A Lizard State,” a fast beat-jazz workout from his 2013 debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, opens with an old Alfred Hitchcock Presents introduction, one in which Hitch used rudimentary special effects to make gravity-related optical illusions and probably blew the minds of everyone watching TV when it first… More »

Watch King Krule Play Conan

Last night, Conan O’Brien welcomed a fellow redhead beanpole to his stage: The mercurial London youngster King Krule. Krule had made his late-night TV debut on Letterman last week, but he did something a bit different for his Conan performance, inviting the horn section from Conan’s band for a full collaboration. Performing the space-jazz beat-poetry… More »

Watch King Krule Play Letterman

Last night, Late Show With David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer paid tribute to Lou Reed (you can hear a bit of “Walk On The Wild Side” in the video below). And it makes sense that the night’s musical guest was another gnarled, mercurial sing-speaker with a thousand-yard stare and a preference for skronky guitar tunings. More »

Mount Kimbie – “You Took Your Time (Kyle Hall Remix)”

Mount Kimbie’s “You Took Your Time” (featuring King Krule) was already one of the best songs off their new album and like all of Kimbie’s output it’s just as, if not more, exciting to hear what people do with the remixes. That Oneman remix pushed the track into even murkier waters and added a ra… More »

Mount Kimbie – “You Took Your Time (Oneman Remix Feat. Jeremiah Jae)” (Feat. King Krule)

On “You Took Your Time,” a song from their new album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, the British post-dubstep duo Mount Kimbie linked up with the young basso warbler King Krule to make a piece of burnt-out weed-talk. And on his remix of the track, the London producer Oneman gets some more guest vocals i… More »

King Krule – “La Luna”

This Saturday, Archy Marshall, the young and croaky-voiced Londoner who records spaced-out jazz-folk as King Krule, turns 19, and he also releases his debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon. And during a recent live-in-studio session for BBC Radio One, Marshall played a few songs from that album, as well as one non-album song, a… More »

Stream King Krule 6 Feet Beneath The Moon

Over two years ago a mysterious artist by the name of Zoo Kid (real name Archy Marshall) released an emotional wrecking ball of a song called “Out Getting Ribs,” but perhaps the biggest surprise of all was that he was only 16 years old. A lot has changed since then, and now just a week… More »

King Krule – “Neptune Estate”

The rumble-voiced London youngster King Krule has spent the past two years building up a deeply strange and fascinating songbook for himself, one that ventures all over the musical map without ever pulling Archy Marshall out of his own head. That songbook finally becomes an album later this month, and that album, 6 Feet BeneathMore »

King Krule – “Easy Easy” Video

When I first wrote about King Krule’s “Easy Easy,” (one of our previous Songs Of The Week) I mentioned how the song is proof that Archy Marshall’s long delay in getting his first album out was will be worth the wait and roughly a month later that resonates even more. It really is one of… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: July 2013

I don’t want to bum anybody out, but summer’s almost over. With an emphasis on almost, meaning anything can still happen (aside from reclaiming that unbridled feeling of summer’s start and infinite possibilities; we’re definitely in the zone of finitude, with all its attendant reminders of our own corporeal mortality, now)! LIVE IT UP! Really. More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week sat out last Friday for the holiday, but we’re back today with a small batch of excellent tunes. Taking one week into consideration is already a hefty task, but this time around we’ve done double and sifted through music from the last 14(!) days for you. Today’s collectio… More »

King Krule – “Easy Easy”

It’s strange to think that after the breakout attention that Archy Marshall aka King Krule got in 2011 (when he was Zoo Kid) with “Out Getting Ribs,” it’s taken him this long to release a debut album. But time has given him the chance to explore some great collaborations and focus his distinctive sound into… More »

Mount Kimbie – “You Took Your Time” (Feat. King Krule)

The introverted British electronic duo Mount Kimbie’s new album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth arrives in a couple of weeks, and we’ve posted the LP tracks “Made To Stray” and “Blood And Form.” And on “You Took Your Time,” another one from they album, they link in with the rumble-voiced young London singer-songwriter King Krule,… More »

King Krule – “Octopus” Video

Last year, the young London croaker-songwriter King Krule released his damaged jazz-folk-step “Rock Bottom” b/w “Octopus” single and a head-wrecking odyssey of a video for the A-side. Today, he shares a video for “Octopus,” the B-side. It’s got a smaller scope than the “Rock Bottom” video, but it’s really just as strange — Krule trapped… More »
