After a downright rotten childhood, the former Archy Marshall – weathering bouts of insomnia and an insatiable curiosity over the music of the likes of Gene Vincent, Fela Kuti and The Cafe Penguin Orchestra, emerged around 2008 as King Krule (a sort of take-off on King Creole) – arrived with a single 2010 – and in 2011 released his first ep. Shortly after that, BBC 6 Music nominated him for the Sound of 2013 poll. And just this past August released his debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon – all to enthusiastic press and audiences.
Pretty good for a kid who just turned 20 this year.
Tonight it’s a set from an appearance in Stockholm in April this past year, preserved for posterity by the venerable Sveriges Radio P3 (a radio station whose site you really need to bookmark and visit daily).
If you aren’t familiar, now’s the time – if you are familiar – this should tide you over until the next time he hits your town.
