'6 Feet Beneath The Moon' is the highly anticipated début album from King Krule.

It's impossible to get away from the age of Archie Samuel Marshall; the release of this record was timed to coincide with his 19th birthday. Having been one of the youngest to ever feature on the 'BBC Sound Of...' longlist I would have to say it was probably to his benefit that he didn't win the award this year.

When a young musician rubs shoulders with more experienced peers people stop to take note. Take for example another 19 year old, EDM's Madeon, who is reaching a standard of production that many of his fellow artists could only dream of.

And yet for Archie, the fascination is richer; infact twofold. Whilst it's equally astounding to hear such professional sounds come out of this young adult it is also the direct imprint that this rawness of age has on his sound that makes this album so enchanting.

'6 Feet Beneath The Moon' draws on a wealth of influences that has shaped Archie's upbringing. But this is not a pastiche. Quite the contrary, Archie's dedications to jazz, hip hop and dub are very much his own and this record revels in its diversity of approach. And yet despite drawing upon different genres, each track's own ambience enhances the loneliness of his vibe and the honesty of his pleas. There is some cliché reverberation - particularly affected by an often overly watery guitar - as such I am constantly reminded of The XX. And lyrically King Krule is at times as juvenile.

Anyone who is brought on listening to a personal soundtrack of Fela Kuti, Django Reinhardt, and Chet Baker is an example of an admirable human being with good sense and taste. The fact that King Krule is a nineteen year old human being is a bonus. The moniker King Krule covers for Archy Marshall and in this slight musician we have solid proof of the wonders of youth. His ability to be brave, to challenge and most of all not to give a flying fig for what others think is at the heart of this musical feast. "6 Feet Beneath the Moon" is a debut album which sees Marshall expertly weld a love of '50s rock'n'roll and rockabilly to classic jazz, hip-hop and UK bass music. Its like a mix of Bill Bragg via Mike Skinner, on route to Edwyn Collins with Charlie Parker thrown in for good measure. Others could be name checked but lets get onto the music.

This is one of the best debuts which has hit British Music since Original Pirate Material. Krule's lyrics are outstanding, mixing the raw and the humorous. He writes about the ordinary and everyday, sandwiches, dead end jobs, alienation - you name it and you will find it in this album. The song highlights are the attention grabbing single "Out getting ribs", the pounding emotion of "Has this hit" with a ferocious vocal from Marshall and the jazzy swirl of "Baby Blue. The songs however which draw you back time and time again are the brilliant "Foreign 2" full of beats and some very nice musical touches, equally the lovely "Neptune Estate" demands repeated listens and playback.

There are a couple of weak moments here but the guy is 19 so let us cut him slack as he is writing better songs than much more established artists. Little wonder he received the full attention of the BBC in terms of its Sound of 2013 promising artist. Finding something truly original is often a frustrating search but in the of "6 Feet beneath the moon" King Krule has served up a very impressive album which wets your appetite for more.

I've followed King Krule's music since the beginning when he was originally Zoo Kid.. His music is amazing, and this album is definitely the best album of 2013- it's safe to say I'm a huge King Krule fan and this album is incredible, good vibes, amazing voice.

Like this album a lot. All the jazzy chords and raw sounding vocals make a refreshing change to smooth jazz. It has an energy and even aggression to it that makes its point very directly and is not quite like anything else I have ever heard. It is bit like a cross between elvis costello, billy bragg, early twotone, the specials and jazzy stuff like Richard Hawley. A nice antidote to the recent trend in pretty boy guitar + anodyne music in young male soloists. It is far from easy listening takes a few listens. He has a good ear for some nice jazzy chord changes but keeps a rough edge. It also feels like its very from the heart.

King krule's been one of my favourites for a while and his ep was great so i was really excited for this album. I found it pretty disappointing. That's not to say it's not a good album but to me, it sounded like some songs were just there for filler and the re-recorded songs lost a lot of heart when compared to the originals. All in all it feels like this album was rushed and it's not an accurate display of the artist's usually amazing talent.
