We’re just one week away from the release of King Krule‘s debut EP. The last month saw Archy Marshall + co visit New York for the first time to basically conquer CMJ and visit France to inaugurate the Pitchfork Festival there. A few weeks ago, we shared the first track from the EP, “The Noose of Jah City“, and now it’s time for a second taste. According to Archy, the title is inspired by Chet Baker, but the tune is 100% King Krule. Enjoy.

We’re drawing closer to the Nov. 8th release of King Krule‘s (aka Archy Marshall formerly Zoo Kid) debut EP, the self-titled King Krule EP. With that in mind, we eagerly and excitedly share with you the first piece of that puzzle, a track by the name of The Noose of Jah City. It’s one of the most nuanced and realized tracks we’re ever heard from the young man (still 17) but explores new sonic and textural spaces thanks in part to his time working with Rodaidh McDonald (The xx) in a proper (albeit small and digital) studio. We hope you enjoy!… Read More
This year, with help from the folks at PopGun Booking we’re happy to announce the True Panther official CMJ showcase.
Bands from all over the True Panther universe…Australia, London UK, California, and New York City (and of course Teengirl Fantasy who are from pretty much everywhere at this point). It’s $12 night of, but $10 if you RSVP.
With his debut single ‘Out Getting Ribs’, 17 year-old King Krule (formerly known as Zoo Kid, born as Archy Marshall in SE London) captured the startling voice of an emerging generation of young Londoners; his unexpectedly deep and mournful baritone tracing disappointment and disorientation to devastating effect. Comprised only of his stark vocals, guitar and searing vocals, it was a bleak but brilliant treaty on the frustration and fury of youth, rubbed raw and laid bare.
Now comes his second release, and with it, an expansion of vision, both musically and thematically. The connective tissue between these five tracks is still Marshall’s stark, direct lyrics, but over the… Read More
