The Rockometer: A Distant Fist Unclenching by Krill

Like their brothers in rock, Pile, the Massachusetts act Krill are one of those bands who wouldn't know a chorus if the chorus was a wet Atlantic salmon and they were smacked over the head with a wet Atlantic salmon chorus. They're also one of those bands who tend to nerd out, and noodle on their instruments for minutes on end like early Modest Mouse and early Built to Spill. Oh, and bassist/vocalist, Jonah Furman has a unique way with words. The most memorable track on the trio's 2014 release, Steve Hears Pile in Malden and Bursts Into Tears, was called "Turd." Furman literally imagined himself as a turd, as in a piece of shit, going down the commode. This is all to say Krill are not going to be everyone's favorite new band, not everyone is going to get it. Those not content with the status quo in modern guitar rock music, however, should by all means get themselves more familiar with the weird world of Krill.

They have a name and sound that reflects the best of '90s guitar rock. And yet, in true '90s, throwback fashion, they can't find satisfaction in any of it.
