    Totally enjoyable!!!! Listen to it and feel the good vibes, but the lyrics are marked with painful experience making the listener engaged. He is 17 and I think that he has a good chance of becoming one of the best, not because of his sound but because of his voice which stands out among the rest, just as his music.

    A good start. With his heavy & thick accent voice and smooth guitar, King Krule give away a truly worthwhile musical experience. A follow up LP would be incredibly delighting. Highlight tracks: The Noose of Jah City, Lead Existence

    wonderful. the vinyl is only $8 on truepanther.com and it's 8 of the best dollars you'll ever spend. 4 groovy, bluesy songs. and that voice! wow. fantastic. i cant wait for a full length.

    An absolutely stunning EP. The smooth jazz guitar offsets the gritty, harsh lyrics. Showing great promise for the future, I just hope he doesn't get tainted by success.

    He's built a singular world where nothing is in focus.

    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.

    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.
