King Krule

Willis Earl Beal's "Church of Nobody" web series just posted its second video, featuring the elusive, dark, and jazzy King Krule, who recently dropped his debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon and plays a two-night stand at The Independent on December 16 and 17. Each piece in Beal's eight video series will feature a musician (the first featured Beal himself) and will focus on a particular quality from his "Principles of a Protagonist" video. The principles are:

  1. Sincerity: Never say or do anything contrary to your overall intentions. (Willis Earl Beal)
  2. Restraint: Be Moderate. Never fully indulge. Detach yourself somewhat. (King Krule)
  3. Composure: Never allow yourself to appear nervous. Project serenity. Always pace yourself. Don't try to keep up.
  4. Ability: Be able to learn & apply. Knowledge should equal skill.
  5. Levity: When interacting with people, avoid rigidity. Let them pass through you. Be like a thin wall of water.
  6. Consistency: Be a pro. Don't be erratic. Gain trust by being reliable.
  7. Neutrality: Don't take sides. Internalize no politics. Take up no other cause except your own. Be empty.
  8. Order: You don't have to be perpetually clean, but know where your shit is when you need it.

Below, watch Krule's installment and check out details on his (sold out) shows at The Independent in December.
