PILE - Green And Grey 2LP (colour vinyl)
Pile are one of the best bands to tackle gritty indie rock / post-harcore. Their discography is so consistent yet diverse. Perhaps this is one the young person asking me about post-hardcore recently should check out...
The attention to detail on these songs is astounding, with the careful arrangements never getting in the way of the raw punkish energy and vice versa.
Pile continue their streak of strong post-hardcore releases with this album. I think they've perfected their shifting in dynamics, achieving that fine balance between softer, calmer parts and absolutely wild, energetic, screeching guitar parts.
