After two feverishly received albums as King Krule, plus another low-key outing under his own name, Archy Marshall returns with Man Alive!, our Record of the Week and possibly his most rounded work yet. The production is still drenched in that signature KK fug, but the moments of light shining through the haze are pretty glorious and it feels like we get more than ever of him on this record. Less snarling than on previous outings, he makes for a hugely captivating narrator. Highly recommended and you'll get more and more out of the smoke on each listen.
+ ‘Man Alive!’ is available on limited edition white 12” vinyl and an indie white edition with bonus transparent red flexi disc including the ‘Hey World!’ version of 'Perfecto Miserable' track.
