    More weirdo avant-jazz zombie vibes coming out of London.

    My vote gets a YES.

    I vote yes as well. Sampled this song the other day and it has a unique and truly creative vibe that I don't see a whole lot of in newer music. Sounds like nothing I've heard before! I've got the album queued up in my Apple Music, stoked for the full release.

    King Krule is not weird, if you like weird try late 70s early 80s Nick Cave and The Birthday Party, that's weird.

    His voice is most definitely an acquired taste!

    Agreed. IMO, the tune's not bad but it is musically far, far from anything I'd call weird. Aside from the tired zombie vibe, even the video is straight forward.

    In defense of the OP, there are various definitions of weird when it comes to music. Certainly nothing you would hear on the radio. Also not the most experimental music I've ever heard, but a unique listen either way!

    Isn't he popular because Jay Z or I don't know who that was totally unexpected supported him?

    Not very. No weirder than Mockingbird by Inez Foxx or Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads. In both of whose cases the rhythm more than makes up for it.

    It's different in a modern context. Drawing from history, it sounded a bit to me like the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band meets The Residents.

    Still, refreshingly different, if not for everyone.

    I'm not sure if there's a cutoff point for my enjoyment of weird music, I love it all!

    Streaming now. Vocals remind me of a cross between Chris Martin and ODB at some points... hahaha.

    I like this! The album is a bit on the long side but maybe thats not too bad, it helps to create this little dark world.
