Following the release of his brilliant, hip-hop inspired album A New Place 2 Drown in 2015, Archy Marshall has returned with a dark, murky and slow jazz album The OOZ under his King Krule moniker. Dark, immersive and rich with texture and depth, The OOZ is King Krule’s best album to date. With impeccable drumming, dominant basslines, gorgeous tenor saxophone and guitar melodies, there is a still the dark post-punk vibe you get from his debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. Some highlights include the opening track ‘Biscuit Town,’ the two singles ‘Dum Surfer,’ ‘Czech One’ and deeper cuts like ‘Sublunary,’ ‘Lonely Blue,’ ‘Cadet Limbo’ and ‘Midnight 01 (Deep Sea Diver)’ which also ends on a snippet of the Always Sunny in Philadelphia theme tune, which was fun to hear.
