Singled Out: Hot Head Show's Payload

(TMZ) Today Jordan from Hot Head Show tells us about "Payload" from their brand new album "The Lemon LP". Here is the story:

Payload is Hot Head Show's only composition to address Cultural Friction, Foreign Policy, or the Frailty of Wartime Diplomacy. Jordan's grandad started the CIA.

The piece opens with a stirring leitmotif stated first by Copeland's searing contratenor, and subsequently developed away from its harmonic centre with increasingly elaborate interjections from the pizzicato strings. The majority of the dialogue is carried by the Bass Guitar, with Drums and Cymbals lending a general ambience of heavy artillery punctuated ruthlessly by the Rhythm Guitar's heady whining deathrattle.

All in all, Payload is a rampant gushing of flagrantly clever counterpoint and balls-out opportunism. We couldn't help but do it. The fact that it's about politics shouldn't affect anyone's approach to listening to it.

The video is by Simon Panrucker, whose prolific sicknesses await your attention here.
