This is surely one of the most intruiging prospects that this year has offered us yet. Although ostensibly an indie album (and this is part of it's charm - it manages to be weird without being experimental and remains accessible), Beat Pyramid shifts paradoxically between esoteric electronica, indie dance-fodder, muffled field recordings, concept album stylings, angular hip-hop and eccentric post-punk.
Although at times it baffles, especially compared to the formulaic dance-indie that they're supposed to be making, it's all held together by recurring themes (cyclicality, numbers etc.), tape loops lapping as the record circles in on itself with `..ce I Will Say This Twice' and `I Will Say This Twi...', acting as a kind of narrative arc. For a bunch of teenagers (at the time of release), it's impressively eccentric and I must refute the cruel suggestion in an earlier review that this is too endebted to post-punk. That's just one of the many ideas thrown into the bulging pot.
Stand-out moments: Doppelganger, Swords Of Truth (Gang Gang Dance's looping beats meet Essex grime-punk delivery), Numbers A.K.A Numerology, MKK3 (think The Klaxons with an oedipal complex), and dance-floor indie belter 'Elvis.'

. . . and I'm ashamed to say I never completed the album so bear that in mind when judging my comments. An avant guard collection of sounds and beats but devoid of music or songs. The highlight for me was my ipod getting stuck and playing the 16 second track '..ce I Will Say This Twice' on repeat which took me about five minutes of listening to realise. Try it - it works, although best with the lights out.

This is a great album, definitely one of my favourites if not my favourite of this year. Inventive, original, intelligent, daring.....cold frigid beauty, psychedelia, mathematics, intellectualism and pop culture filtered through a range of genres (post punk, hip hop, techno) and inventive sounds. Also, really great tunes. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. It's strange, slightly mocking, distance combined with soulful ambience will captivate you for many a future listen.
