Year-end music round-up: King Krule's "Easy Easy"

For some people, December is a time to run around in shopping malls, fighting for the last set of icicle Christmas lights. For others, it's to weed through all those "COUNTING! DOWN! TO! THE! BEST! ALBUMS! OF! THE! YEAR!" lists.

As a former music fanatic who doesn't really get excited by many new things these days, I wander through new releases very skeptically... But 19-year-old King Krule sure did an impeccable job at winning my heart and making me a little nostalgic for those playful college years.
