It’s here, it’s here! The day many of us have been waiting for, King Krule has put out a stream of his highly anticipated album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. Is it incredible like we all imagined? You can be the judge, but I’d like to bet not many people will be disappointed in this raw, passionate piece of work. On King Krule’s website you can see a couple of visuals of the city with each track or you can just take a listen to it below. Be sure to support the album when it officially comes out August 24th.
The wait for King Krule’s album feels like forever, but he continues to show us a flavor of what to expect. This time he gives us a visual for the mesmerizing track “Neptune Estate”. As usual, it’s a haunting indie track that reels us in in the most unique way possible. 6 Feet Beneath the Moon should be a real beauty and its out August 24th via True Panther and XL.
If you were slackin’ this week, let’s catch up on the best of what you missed! Songs of the Week, July 8 through July 14 edition.
Plain and simple, this one is just a proper jam. Portugal is a great band, and with the help of Passion Pit, this remix is impossible to not dance to. It’s a struggle to stay sitting just to write this post, to be honest. I saw Portugal a few years ago at Lollapalooza and have been a fan ever since–the combination of them and Passion Pit on this one is almost too much for my weak heart to handle.
This is pretty much the music I would expect Passion Pit to create if they were to experience with serious hallucinogenics. Jordan calls them indietronic (indie + electronic) which I guess makes sense, but if I had to put a label on it, I think I’d call it Triptronic. It makes me think I’m Mario gokarting down rainbow road on a quarter ounce of mushrooms. Ya know?
I’ve seen King Krule‘s name before, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually listened to his music, and I really dig it. The minimalist, hip hop influenced (I think?) rock that he’s making is simultaneously niche and accessible. His ability to evoke emotion through such barebones musicianship is quite impressive. There’s beauty in simplicity. Well if you’re going through hell, just keep going.
So it’s no surprise here that this song sounds tailor-made for the beach. Perfect song for cruising in a Jeep Wrangler, or better yet, a Land Rover defender, just all around a pretty perfect summer sound. Beach Vacation is a definitely a newcomer to keep your eyes on.
This is also my first time hearing as†ronomyy, and to me it kind of sounds like The Weeknd meets Schlomo. Floating, ethereal, mysterious, the artists describes the track as “an escapism song, which is why it sounds a little dreamy and otherworldly.” This is a name we will be seeing in the future, I am sure.
Could it be? Finally the debut album from King Krule is on its way? Yes, it’s freaking true! Today he’s released a track off of it called “Easy Easy”. Of course it’s raw, inspiring and generally that King Krule that we all grew to love through his previous work. After what feels like centuries of waiting, his debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon will be up for pre-order beginning tonight at midnight. It’ll be officially out August 24 on True Panther Sounds and XL Recordings.
The past few weeks have been some of the most hectic weeks of my life. I have been everywhere and then some, or at least it feels like it. I think these weeks have changed my life. I think I have learned some stuff about myself, and I think I actually enjoyed the busyness. I think I proved to myself that I can handle pressure. Not school or social pressure, but real life pressure, which is basically all the pressure you’ve had all your life plus death and taxes. It’s funny though. Now that I’ve realized I might actually be able to handle adult life, I know how much I don’t want it–not now, at least.
I feel like we’ve been thrown into this race ever since we were young. A race to grow up. And the intensity of the race gets more and more as the race goes on. And it’s about right now that the race is at its most intense, and it’s scary, because I’m losing some people in the race. They’ve stopped to take a rest, catch their breath, enjoy the fresh air. It’s been a long race. At the same time, some people are thriving, so much so, that I don’t even know if they know why they want to win the race anymore! They just know they have to win, and they’ll stop at nothing to get there. Now, I have to figure out how I want to run the race. Matters are only complicated when I find out that there are no shortcuts in this race, and there are multiple ways to finish the race. More choices. Decisions. The possibilities are endless.
