New York City hip-hop group Ratking release their debut full-length So It Goes on April 8 via Hot Charity.
They’ve shared the video for their King Krule featured track, “So Sick Stories.” The mood and atmosphere that they create alongside Archy is something magical, something that a lot of hip-hop is missing these days. It just feel like a classic in the making. I’m very impressed by “So Sick Stories” and think it may be my favorite hip-hop track of the year so far.
King Krule has a grind for hip-hop tracks, more than you’d expect. He adds a little something to this track that would hurt it he wasn’t there.
King Krule keeps the TV appearances going strong. Last week he stopped by Letterman to play “Easy Easy.” Then last night he stopped by Conan to play “Lizard State” with a 3-piece horn section and all. The guy just keeps amazing me.

King Krule made his U.S. TV debut the other night on Letterman, giving a hot performance of 6 Feet Beneath The Moon track, “Easy Easy.” They really knocked it out of the park. Watch the performance below. Read the rest of this entry »
King Krule played a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom on Monday, which is pretty amazing considering Archie is only 19-years old. The rest of the band looks to be of the same age, if not younger. Mostly dressed in suits and looking a lot older and more serious than when I first saw him at CMJ two years ago (jesus, time has absolutely flown by!). Read the rest of this entry »
King Krule has released another song off his new album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. It’s the spacey cool “Neptune Estate” that is chilled out and relaxed, as if you’re floating all the way out in space, headed towards Neptune. There’s a hip-hop element at play here along with some jazzed up brass horns, only making the game of King Krule that much more interesting. There’s not much that this young man can’t do.
Take a listen below. Be sure to check out the album’s lead single “Easy Easy” and watch its video.
King Krule has released a video for his new single “Easy Easy” that sees him hanging around London making me miss it quite a bit. He’s really come into his own over the years and this single/video really show a lot of growth.
King Krule has finally announced his debut album. It’s titled 6 Feet Beneath The Moon and will come out August 24 via True Panther/XL Recordings. It’s strange to think this is his debut album, as he has been around for well over 2 years. Fans of “Out Getting Ribs”, the single that he released under the name Zoo Kid back in 2011, will be included on the album as well.
With the album announcement Archy shared with us the album’s lead single, “Easy.” It’s understated instrumentally in a way that gives Archie’s unique vocals all the spotlight to shine. The kid is incredible.
I want you to realize that Archy turns 19 the day the album is released. Think back to what you were doing when you were 19, and then slap yourself. He wins.
Mount Kimbie has a few collaboration’s with King Krule on his new album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. It comes out May 28 via Warp. The first collaboration to be released is called “You Took Your Time.” The vocals of Archie work really well with the chilled out atmosphere that Mount Kimbie have created.
