Pyramid Vritra, Origami Vinyl Wednesday, November 23, 2011 Reviewed

By Alyson Camus | November 25, 2011

Pyramid Vritra was in fact a duo, rapping over a sluggish-druggy sometimes jazzy or even electronic beats,… people were laughing, as they visibly knew the lyrics, which were delivered with detachment and a sort of second degree, venting some frustrations, sometimes rhythmically with dynamic beats, other times more melodically

The Sword Wiltern Theater Friday, November 18th, 2011

By Alyson Camus | November 22, 2011
