Thanks to the Friend of DC9 who pointed this Pitchfork review out to us before we got around to our own daily surfing this morning.
It's a review of Denton's Pyramids' debut, self-titled record. And according to the 'forker who wrote this piece, the record's, oh, a 6.5 (which, case you forgot, means it's not quite Dual Hawks). This, despite the generally positive tone of the review.
Funniest thing 'bout Pyramids, though, is that, despite being signed to Hydra Head, and despite supposedly calling Denton home, no one seems to know who they are. Plus, they apparently refuse to play live. --Pete Freedman

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
