We featured Archy Russell right back at the start of the year when he was plying his trade under the Zoo Kid moniker, so yeah yeah alright it’s not technically fresh, but he’s so great we thought he deserved a mention for the stuff he’s doing under the new name – King Krule. Everything that was first great about him remains, from the dark sparsity of the music to that brilliant cockney voice pitched somwhere between Jamie T and Joe Strummer. New track ‘The Noose of Jah City’ builds a stark, heady atmosphere, pinned down by lyrics that belie his youth and punch you right in the gut. King Krule’s second release is set to drop on November 8th.
