king krule

Gingers do have soul. I have been listening to the King Krule EP that was released earlier this month and I'm feeling it. Last year, Archy Marshall was just a sixteen year old with a bandcamp account he was posting on under the name Zoo Kid. Now, at seventeen, he is gaining notoriety in Europe and more recently in the U.S. as King Krule. His style sounds much closer to jazz then any type of rock/pop music. With a voice like Billy Bragg drunkenly wrestling Joe Strummer, Marshall's songs base themselves around the warm guitar and his distinctive vocals. This EP is only five tracks long so listener beware : you will want more.
