To me Pile sounds like a Rick Froberg or Ian MacKaye project filtered through years of bands that were heavily influenced by Froberg and MacKaye, taking the Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes frontman's vicious snarl and chopping it up with loud-quiet-loud bursts of guitar and drum swells that were employed by Fugazi and hundreds of bands that came after.
Pile's a band that defies simple categorization. Their nervy, unwinding catharsis is an odd contender for cult band de jour, but that's where the band has found themselves since Dripping. If 20-something indie-rock torch bearers carried binders, they'd all have Pile written on them with hearts right about now.
