Music Monday: You Can Call Me King K

So in my previous post, I talked about how I’ve been reading Pitchfork on a daily basis. Just to briefly recap, Pitchfork is this site that reviews independent music. One of the artists I discovered because of Pitchfork is a singer called King Krule.

King Krule is an artist from the UK and his stage name is inspired, ironically enough, by my favorite Elvis song “King Creole.” His music style is very indie rock with some downtempo and electronica elements as well. I first heard of him after the singer Lorde tweeted about him but I didn’t pay him much mind until I saw a good review on Pitchfork that made me decide to check him out and I found that I really like his music! Pitchfork strikes again!

Siracha and Pitchfork

It all started a couple months ago when Atherton Dining Hall started replacing its hot sauce with Siracha sauce. I reluctantly tried it and instantly fell in love. It had such a spice I never tasted before and it soon became my newest obsession. I started putting it on all my food! Heck, if I could put it in my water I could but don’t worry I haven’t gone that far yet. According to the Huffington Post, it’s the newest trend in healthy eating sauces so it looks like I’m on to something. Who knew Atherton would get me obsessed with something!?

Speaking of new obsessions, so I’ve previously chronicled how I’m a hipster now and one of the ways I’ve been doing it is by reading the website Pitchfork. Pitchfork is a snooty website that reviews new independent music and is like every hipster’s Bible and I love it. I read it every day for new hipster music news and reviews just to feel pretentious when I like the music they like. So basically this break, for me, has been full of nothing but Siracha and Pitchfork.

The Siracha sauce I bought the other day! Delicious!
