Apparently I'm a little late on the game with this dude, as its seems the coolest cool kids where talking about him this time last year.
King Krule (formerly Zoo Kid) is the coolest of cool. awkwardly lovable, brash, with a hazy sound thats keeping me pressing repeat like i haven't since The Smiths entered my young life. His deceptively simple and raw music has a knowing sensibility that when coupled with his baby face makes for a winning combination.
Check the tunes here but first watch this stunning video for "Out Getting Ribs" (the kids got good taste, yeah, in food and art).
picture it: Archy and Hedi Slimane to do british teen heart throbe in hollywood. if it hasn't already happened. maybe i'll set it up. Archy should be modeling anyway.
