[Krill is] back with a new EP, the amazingly titled Steve Hears Pile In Malden And Bursts Into Tears. In case you don’t know, Malden is a town north of Boston, Pile are perhaps the great unsung heroes of the Boston music scene, and Steve is the unfortunate protagonist of this “failed concept album.” The story follows Steve, a huge fan of Pile who dreams of making something worthy of them, only to come to the realization that he is actually a character in a Pile song. Below you can find the title track of the EP streaming. It’s hilarious, it’s existentially depressing, it’s a love letter. It’s great. In other words, it’s Krill.
