First Listen: King Krule
Archy Marshall's work as King Krule is instantly recognizable. The reason for this is Marshall's voice, a deep-throated mumble that alternates between growls and slurs but always manages to remain both enthralling and surprisingly emotive. At points, Marshall sounds more like he's chewing his words than singing them. Talented beyond his years - he began his career in music in 2010, at 16 years old - Six Feet Beneath The Moon is a powerful, confusing record that draws on jazz, punk hip-hop and blues in a dizzying variety of speeds and colors. You can stream the LP here, before its scheduled release on August 24.
