6 Feet Beneath the Moon

Archy Marshall makes music that's pleasantly out of focus, dangling his drowsily exaggerated Cockney accent over ice-flow hip-hop beats striped with sad-lounge pianos and watery guitars. On his full-length debut, lazy-bloke admissions like "I will end up on the dole/It's my life" sound at once tired, sad, tough and drunk, suggesting the Morrissey of U.K. dubstep.
