KRILL

ALLSTON PUDDING | allstonpudding.com | I'm semi-obsessed with the eclecticism Krill have brought to power-trio garage rock. The recent Tufts grads lent a new perspective to the local DIY scene with the release of their debut LP, Alam No Hris, in March. Jonah Furman's maniacally soulful vocals are the immediate grab, but don't let it take away from the methodical time changes of "Sick Dogs (For Jake)" or the cyclical lyricism of "Solitaire." Krill's unpolished charm is classic Boston, but they move beyond simple power-chord structures by taking chances and rolling sevens with colorful riffs, odd bass effects, and commanding percussion. In a musical age where experimentation is the key to getting ahead of the pack, Krill swear by the beauty of recklessness, but in the end definitely try hard enough.
