These New Puritans "Beat Pyramid"

These New Puritans "Beat Pyramid"

Released back in March, 2008, "Beat Pyramid" has been getting played nonstop since I made this purchase last month. Only when something this hot would I buy both the MP3 download and the vinyl album. If i could describe their sound then I would say, Gang of Four meets The Rapture. Their punk-funk sound is genuine and does not reek of themed conventions. Simple. Raw and dance friendly. Buy this!

  • The cover image of Bitte Orca is a splendid illustration of telepathy. And the music is not bad either.

Their music has never disappointed my deep need for quirky, left-field electronics. These two guys are blissfully out of their minds and having fun! On a serious tip, Matmos really knows how to modulate sound. Liner Notes: Arp, Korg, Roland, Waldorf, Moog, Doepfer, Suzuki Omnichord, Coupigny, EVI/Electronic Voice Instrument: all synth brands the very mention of which make vintage gear fetishists salivate. These also happen to provide the sole sound sources for Matmos’ new album. That’s right, no contact mics on scalps, mollusks, or the CNS for these recordings! Not to fear though, the same sensibility is behind the manipulation of these pre-synthesized sounds into a tasty and distinctly Matmosian dish.
