Stream King Krule The Ooz

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2013, we were first introduced to Archy Marshall’s idiosyncratic project King Krule, a bizarre and druggy mix of hip-hop, punk, jazz, and trip-hop-leaning electronics. That debut, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, immediately showed Marshall to have a very unique musical sensibility, and it won him both wide acclaim and a fervent fan base. More »

King Krule – “Half Man Half Shark”

This post was originally published on this site

Next week, the London enigma King Krule will return to gift with the new album The Ooz. And after sharing the early singles “Czech One” and “Dum Surfer,” he’s now dropped the new track “Half Man Half Shark.” It’s a cryptic, gravelly junkyard groove that reminds me of something that a young … More »

I can’t think of any title for this article about King Krule’s new album The OOZ that doesn’t invoke the second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

Archy Marshall, owner of a voice that would make gravel itself weep, has unveiled his latest album as King Krule. Weighing in at a hefty 19 tracks, The OOZ is out October 13 via True Panther Sounds in North America and XL Recordings in Europe, and will be the first King Krule album since 2013’s Six Feet Beneath the Moon.

If that weren’t king-kool enough, the announcement of The OOZ comes to us accompanied by a video for a great cut off the album, “Dum Surfer.” In the 2Spooky4U clip, Marshall rolls on a gurney right into a gig at an off-brand Twin Peaks Roadhouse. There, he and his band of undead ghouls rock and/or roll through “Dum Surfer” for a bunch of unsavory and sweaty-looking characters (I didn’t see James and Freddy anywhere, but the Fireman might’ve been diggin’ on it in the back?)…Idk, music videos are weird, right? I’m sure it’s all a really compelling metaphor when you sit down and think about it. Whatever, like I said, the song is great!

Don’t take my word for it though. Watch the video for “Dum Surfer” down below, and find out the secret of The OOZ for yourself when the album comes out on October 13. You can pre-order and pre-save (“pre-saving” is apparently a thing now) the album here.
