London electronic duo Mount Kimbie team up with neo-soul singer King Krule for "You Took Your Time", one of two such collaborations featured on the pair's sophomore LP, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth . With Mount Kimbie laying down a futuristic jazz beat of wub-by synths and kinetic drums, Krule provides heavily-accented vocals that blur the line between croon and sing-talk. And as the duo build the track to a chaotic and fevered pitch, Krule is right there with them offering random yelps and wailing. Listen in below. [...]
It's one of Crack in The Road 's and Disco Naiveté's best kept secret, they have finally let the world lay ears/eyes on his sound and brought us much joy. So here we are. Letting our readers discover the up and coming London artist Jamie Isaac . He just played on the same bill as Moko (another of our faves) and we're proud to introduce him to you frenchies today. It's melodramatic piano galore with a touch of electronic elements that goes magically in pair under his equally brilliant voice. His latest track 'Softly Draining Seas' is [...]
Wow, Ratking killed this remix! Previously: King Krule - Rock Bottom
Wow, not bad for a B-Side eh? "Octopus" will be released alongside "Rock Bottom" on Rinse next week.
How old is King Krule? Surely he should be out joy-riding and shot-gunning beers - instead he stays in and pens some damn fine pop records. The new single is out on Rinse next week - here's the B Side:
Click here to watch a live version of this brilliant track. "Rock Bottom" will be released on 24th September on Rinse Records.
It's still hard to believe that Archy Marshall aka King Krule is in fact so young. Still only 17 and he sounds like he's been through a war of emotions. In this live version, he demostrates what it is he does best, injected a loose and limber arrangement into a world-weary song that starts with "just another disappointed soul..". Archy certainly has an old soul. More impressively, he wrote this song as Zoo Kid when he 15. A video of another song and a interview follow...
Welcome to Tuesday, not exactly sure what Mary Todd Lincoln is doing there but I am going to allow it. I have recently lost my sight and I have not yet learned brail or how to make my computer read stuff to me, so please someone send me a Youtube video of what, if anything on this list is good or not. I think I remember reading, before the accident, that Cass McCombs had a new album coming out. I hope so, I really like him. 13ghosts: Garland of Bottle Flies [...]

The EP is out next week. Hear previous songs released as Zoo Kid at Bandcamp . King Krule- Portrait In Black and Blue by truepanther Marshall also has a side-project DJ JD Sports. Watching over [...]
My computer magically restored, I'm going to attempt to write this in between trips to the front door for trick-or-treaters. There's a bit of a Scouse theme today to this, the one weekly blog where Some Of It Was True! drops its London-only focus... King Krule - The Noose of Jah City Hey I pick at the scab and I know I'll make it worse but that only intensifies my longing, my need, my compulsion. The dull candlelight flickers conspiratorially as I scrabble away, my fingernails like vultures greedily let loose on a [...]
He's only bloody 17 but Archy Marshall has already undergone a name change from Zoo Kid who I introduced earlier in the year to King Krule. He's also signed up with True Panther and releases a new self-titled EP on November 8th. The gravelly-voiced teenager channelling Elvis Costello and Jamie T vibe is still in full effect on the closing number of the EP and our first taster 'The Noose Of Jah City'. Pre-order it here .
