In the current sea of guitar-heavy northeast indie rockers, Boston’s Pile has a different approach from the average post-punk thrashers — perhaps taking a cue from the Pixies and often slowing the pace down to give their melodies some room to breathe. Don’t let that make you think they’re any less powerful, though, as they can and do unleash some head-spinning serious riffage and growling vocal fury when they feel the need to. Another hard-touring band in the Exploding In Sound Records world, they’re already a household name around these parts, and leaving a trail of happy music fans everywhere they go.
Featured song: “Tin Foil Hat”
