Co-Pilot is one of my favorite local bands so I am happy to see them on the list for this weekend’s Free Press Summer Fest, which is again held in Eleanor Tinsley Park on the edge of downtown Houston. Last year’s The Course Of Empire is a great album, which you can get from the band’s Bandcamp page.
Here’s a snippet of what I wrote about The Course Of Empire:
With its new EP–five tracks of sedate, lush soundscapes punctuated by moments of balls-out, fuzzy rock–Co-Pilot lets the songs, each of which flows into the next, very gradually build to the point where you’ve almost accepted that there won’t be a breakdown into the amped-up thrash that, while stereotypical of the genre, never fails to work…
Co-Pilot helps kick off Free Press Summer Fest this Saturday, 6.4.11, at noon on the Night Owl stage.
