King Krule – Man Alive! – Vinyl, LP, True Panther Sounds, 2020
Like any great artist on the rise, Archy Marshall’s life is moving fast. There’s a lot to catch up on, after 2017’s sprawling masterpiece, The OOZ, broke through amid Mercury Prize nominations and mind-blowing media plaudits. Unlike that record, Man Alive! Doesn’t aim to present any kind of narrative thread, or Brexit-era state- of-the-nation address, just a collection of snapshots and stories, artfully sequenced into a dazzlingly coherent whole. Man Alive! #is available on CD, standard single LP black vinyl and as a limited red vinyl edition sold exclusively at independent record stores.
