Where do we begin? Well, how about his first and only single, “Cat Gotcha Tongue?!?“. Taking a page out of Justin Timberlake’s book and throwing in some modern underground instrumentation, what we have here is by far one of the catchiest tunes we have heard in quite some time. This visual artist turned singer and producer thought it would be cool to put together a new creative project. The end result was something that we don’t even think this Buffalo native could have ever even imagined himself. It could just be beginner’s luck, but we have a feeling Jack Magma is going to start pumping out infectious gems more often. We can only hope.
Most of you already know him by now, but we are really anticipating the waves this young fellow is bound to make this year. 2012 ended with a jamming double single in “Rock Bottom” and “Octopus“, which we hope is just the tip of what is to come. While only being born in 1994, this kid clearly has an old soul. With a voice so deep and haunted, along with incredibly groovy production, we think King Krule‘s crossover appeal is going to make for a very bright future. Archy Marshall has yet to make an announcement of any new music for 2013, but with only one release and a couple of remixes in 2012, he is due for some new material.
