    The record also feels like an important moment in time marked on a door frame--it's an intriguing peek into the restless, youthful development of King Krule.

    The five-song King Krule EP locates a tantalizing Venn-diagram intersection of dub and jazz that still somehow manages to recall Billy Bragg and the bleak, baroque pop of Bill Fay.
  3. There's no filler, no fat to be trimmed, simply four solid pop songs and a brief instrumental introduction tied together in a neat fashion.

    We have an airy, understated collage that acts more as a stopgap teaser to keep the spotlight on the young lad from London, before something more cohesive and fully-realized can be recorded.

    Really interesting album with nice slow guitar melodies and really painful lyrics delivered with the slows submissive tones of Krule's powerful voice.
