And Tesco’s stealing my money (London poetry)

King Krule – “Easy Easy” from Foundation Content on Vimeo.

King Krule’s debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is finally out. It’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely for me. He’s 19 years old, Archy Marshall, the person behind King Krule. I don’t know where he gets wits and brains from, but he has that effortless aura about him that Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines had just at the very beginning, when they could just play around and turn everything to gold.

King Krule is probably not going to become that big, these jazzy and loose tunes are a bit it’s a bit too tricky for that. But in my view there is a musical genius at work behind these seemingly slapdash numbers. Easy Easy encapsulates it all, and when Archy sings about how Tesco is stealing his money I somehow completely understand what he is saying.
