Idle Pilot - Lead Head Fred
‘Lead Head Fred’ is the newest recording by Boston’s self proclaimed post-whatever outfit Idle Pilot. While the band’s previous material usually stayed safely within the post-hardcore/math-rock boundaries, this new song sees the group slowing things down and focusing more on storytelling and mood creation. Initially beginning with soft spoken word over a somber guitar track the song soon slips into a more unsettling section with guitarist/singer Alex Miller’s vocals becoming more manic and urgent with equally frantic instrumentation underneath. As the story reaches it’s climax the song culminates into an explosion of noise only to finally settle down again until it's conclusion.
Recorded by Paul Poremski at UMass Lowell.
Additional recording, mixing, and mastering by Dereck Blackburn at Quiethouse Recording.
