A Distant Fist Unclenching, the newest batch of songs from Boston’s Krill, is--for lack of a more refined, technical musical term--freakin' awesome. Heavy Modest Mouse and Built to Spill influences permeate the tracks, especially on songs like “Foot.” Super-tight stops and thick guitars are rampant throughout this song (and the rest of the album), making it nearly impossible not to crank this record as loud as your speakers will go.
Krill has quite a big year planned so far. Currently on a European tour, the band will be back in Boston on 3/13 for an LP release show at Great Scott, before heading back on the road for a string of dates that will be capped-off by an opening spot at this May's Boston Calling festival.
