King Krule - The Ooz (9/10)

Arriving four years after his previous release, King Krule’s sophomore album, The Ooz, delivers a concoction of punk, ambience, jazz and bossa nova that makes for a dark mixture of charismatic layers coated with complicated textures. Higher paced than his debut record, King Krule’s new 19-track album (including “True Color,” “Dum Surfer,” “Half Man, Half Shark”) is brutally honest, rough, vulnerable and at times, lonesome. With an emphasis on jazz triplets played on the ride and fluid interludes throughout the album, listeners glide right through the density and grit of The Ooz.
