Earlier this year we wrote that Krill were recording new tracks at Silent Barn-- only a few months after the release of their second full-length record, Lucky Leaves. The fruit of that recording session is a "failed concept album," entitled Steve Hears Pile In Malden and Bursts Into Tears. The concept revolves around two kids in the outskirts of Boston who discover that they are part of a Pile song-- with some Dostoyevsky thrown in for good measure. The idea is as funny, self-referential and low-key poigniant as we've come to expect from a band that has their own theme song. Krill has released the title track from the upcoming 10". The track clocks in at less than two minutes and is as melodic as it is propulsive-- featuring the same kind of twisted riffage and hysterical vocals that characterized Lucky Leaves.
Check out the track below, and see Krill tonight at Shea Stadium as part of the Big Snow Farewell Party pt. 2 that Ad Hoc is co-presenting. Steve Hears Pile In Malden and Bursts Into Tears is out Feburary 18 via Exploding in Sound.
