CASSETTE REVIEW: Pyramidal “Change of Heart” (Already Dead)

                A lot of cassettes in what I like to refer to as the Tape Revival come off sounding one of two ways.  They are either ambient or they have beats.

                Granted, there are bands out there that seem to make music and then just happen to have it released on cassette, either because they themselves like cassettes or someone just says “Hey, can I put your music on tape?” and they say, “Sure!”.

                Pyramidal is that rare combination of ambient music with beats that reminds us of perhaps the first time that I had peanut butter and jelly.  Oh sure, it had been done before, I was not the first to taste the flavor sensation, but it’s just different when you discover it, as if it’d never happened before.

                Maybe… Maybe Pyramidal is doing something that has been done before, maybe we all have for that matter.   But they’re just doing it so well
