Caught in the net: Marvellous Archie Marshall aims for the stars

Eighteen-year-old Archie Marshall has been steadily garnering acclaim under his stage name, King Krule, for his hazy, dark melange of sounds: a touch of new wave guitar, some synths, a hint of dubstep, a bassy vocal growl. His self-titled 2011 EP was a particular standout. Now comes his debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, out on 24 August, the occasion of young Marshall's 19th birthday. The record's opening track, “Easy Easy”, is streaming now at youtu.be/9i35KOGBYBo – and it's a fine, spare effort.

Caught in the net: Hit-machine Pharrell Williams keeps them coming

Pharrell Williams (pictured) has already featured on the two big hits of the summer, Daft Punk's “Get Lucky” (you may have heard it once or twice) and Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines”, but he is certainly not stopping there. Next up, he's offered production duties (and occasional vocals) on the new single from southern rapper 2 Chainz. “Fedz Watching” is the particularly catchy and infectious turn from the pair; find it at 2chainz.com. Pharrell is also on a new track from Azealia Banks. A radio rip of “ATM Jam” is streaming – for now – on Soundcloud at azealiainfo/azealia- banks-atm-jam-feat.
