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.

If I were to tell you that Archie Marshall – otherwise known as King Krule – had a hip-hop project on the side, you probably would be skeptical, and understandably so. But he does just this under the moniker Edgar The Beatmaker.

It’s him, and he has a surrounding cast of friends that seemed to have joined him on the project, as there are more than one voices taking part in the songs. He’s released 7 songs as an EP titled Darkest Shades Of Blue. They are all available to stream on bandcamp right now. I got an embed of the EP so you can listen right below.

[new]: King Krule – Octopus

By Will Oliver, September 19th 2012

“Octopus” is the jazzy b-side to King Krule’s “Rock Bottom” single, which Rinse will release next week (September 24). It’s insane that an 18-year-old is capable of producing as textured music as “Octopus”. Archy is a man way ahead of his years.

Listen to the ever so smooth “Octopus” below.

[new]: King Krule – Rock Bottom

By Will Oliver, August 15th 2012 — with 2 comments

King Krule’s new single is called “Rock Bottom”, which is the complete opposite direction than young Archy Marshall is headed towards. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard Archy play this live at some point (Pitchfork?), and it still kicks just as hard, and well.

For an 18-year-old, Archy is not only putting kids his age to shame, but many of the older class as well. This is an incredibly delightful song, way ahead of his time. This one is not to be missed. Take a listen below.

It’s the A-side of his Rock Bottom/Octopus single, which is due out September 24 via Rinse.

King Krule @ Pitchfork Music Festival (July 15, 2012)

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2012 — with 3 comments



I’ve seen King Krule a few times over the last year and it seems like his band is always changing. That was due to happen, and it’s caused his music only to become more improved. The kid is only a kid, and it’s only a matter of time until he really settles into his own. He’s already one to watch, but give him a few years and he will be one of the top members of his class.

As long as Archy is at the helm, the song quality will remain with the King Krule name, and that’s all that matters.

Girls, Real Estate, King Krule @ Terminal 5 (January 14, 2012)

By Will Oliver, January 16th 2012 — with 1 comment

My first show of 2012 was no small affair. It was a lethal bill consisting of King Krule, Real Estate, and Girls at Terminal 5. You can call it an indie rock invasion. A good one at that.

First you got a young band just emerging from the breeding grounds of True Panther. Another is a band that seems to be rising every given moment, making New Jersey very proud. Finally you got Girls, a band who have come a long way since 2009, selling out one of the bigger venues NYC has to offer, and doing so with relative ease.

[CMJ] King Krule @ Fader Fort (10/21/2011)

By Will Oliver, October 23rd 2011

Seeing King Krule in person puts his talent in perspective. He and his band look even younger when seen in person, but remember, age is just a number. His music was distinct and full of soul. He didn’t play his Zoo Kid track, “Out Getting Ribs”, a clear sign that this young man has truly moved on as his new persona, King Krule.

It was one of the many shows that he played during CMJ, and I don’t know where it stands with the rest, but I was very impressed at the talent of this young man.

Found him after the show and just a quick handshake made me realize at just how young he is. I’m only 21 yet I felt real old. The sky is the limit for Mr. Archy. It’s gonna be fun to watch his rise.
