We are happy to welcome Knot to Exploding In Sound Records  with the announcement of their self titled debut LP, due out August 28th. The band is made up of our familiar friends Jonah Furman, Aaron Ratoff, Ian Becker (all of Krill) and guitarist Joe DeManuelle-Hall. In simple terms Knot is a bigger, more ruminative version of Krill, but it’s also something that’s distinct unto itself. And on the band’s debut album it’s easy to see that Knot has a perspective all its own. You can hear the first single “Foam” from the upcoming album

Krill has built up a fiercely loyal fan base over the past year or two, but you may have missed them unless you live in New York or Boston and keep careful tabs  on the musical renaissance sprouting up around the label Exploding i​n Sound Records, which has been churning out stellar albums by bands like P​ile, Sp​eedy Ortiz, and ​Porches.​ since 2008.

Exploding in Sound re-released Krill’s second album, “Lucky Leaves”, earlier this year, and the songs garnered enough attention to get them touring more and working on a follow-up, which is slated for release in February. Fans have told the band that “Lucky Leaves” sounds like “Modest Mouse on pot,” but Modest Mouse never wrote songs as proggy and knotted as Krill,

Krill’s latest single  “Torturer” to be released February 2015 on Exploding in Sound Records rumbles from the gut of lead singer Jonah Furman as the “torturer” rips off his mask and reveals that it is Furman himself who has been ripping apart his insides with rigorous self-contemplation. The torturer is now ready for final judgement, but Furman wonders if “it’s time to go back inside” and why he is even there in the first place. Laid out over a bed of bubbling bass and buzzing guitars, “Torturer” is further proof that Krill transcends their goofy online presence and is a “guitar rock” band with substance. With literary-inspired themes and interesting concepts, Krill continues to grow into a band that will be around a while.

A five-song suite from locally beloved Boston threepiece Krill, “Steve Hears Pile in Malden and Bursts Into Tears” is ostensibly a concept record about a maybe-fictional twentysomething who asks the very-real Boston band Pile to jam with him before getting politely rebuffed. “If I could have made something good, I would have by now,” sings frontman Jonah Furman, embodying the spirit of a laidback dude pretending he wasn’t just totally crushed. The rest of the tracks are less conceptual, but all contain Furman’s slightly unhinged lyrical self-deprecation — including a lengthy metaphor about viewing oneself as literal shit on “Turd” — and the band’s darkly pretty grunge rock.
