Pile proved once and for all with their second album that it doesn't take a fancy major label or big budget production to make an incredible record, self releasing Magic Isn't Real to acclaim in 2010. Growing up during the musical rich 90's alternative rock scene, Pile wear their influences well, drawing from a dynamic range of bands incorporating the best elements of grunge, post-punk, and indie guitar rock. Imagine Nirvana, Barkmarket, Fugazi, Pavement, and early Modest Mouse blended together in a dingy basement loaded with explosives and you can begin to grasp the aural confines in which Pile operate.

Magic Isn't Real is unbelievably engaging, full of immediately crushing riffs, triumphantly harsh guitar tones, and wildly addictive vocal melodies at all times. The Boston group waste no time during any of their songs, launching head first into honest and brutally infectious tunes that only get better with every listen. Pile flexes their musical muscles often, able to effortlessly mix sludge with soaring melodies, scathing rawness with quirky catchiness, and blinding aggression with a keen sense of humor. 

Pile created a monster with Magic Isn't Real, a rowdy hybrid of everything we love about rock, strewn together brilliantly. Featuring some of the band's most beloved songs ("Pets," "Don't Touch Anything," and "Came As A Glow"), the record is an absolute masterpiece. Magic may not be real but there is certainly something special going on here.
