This Kid is More Talented Than You

When it comes to our popular music, we are so often forced to wade though wave after wave of scholcky garbage, it is almost shocking when we stumble upon an artist who serves up the kind of emotional agony as Archy Mitchell does.  Maybe its the road weary voice or the stories about all the women who have hurt him, but it feels like the London native has seen enough pain to last him a lifetime or two.  The thing is, Mitchell, who now performs under the King Krule moniker, is all of 17 years old.  He created some internet buzz about a year ago, when he was performing as Zoo Kid, and now his first King Krule EP is out (on True Panther).  Below are two tracks from the EP plus one of my favorite tracks from 2010, “Out Getting Ribs.”
