Pyramid Thieves remain faithful to their sound in new record, play Boston City Hall Plaza 09.28

After teasing us with their synth-pop single “Scenes” earlier this year, Boston’s Pyramid Thieves, at last, have released their 2019 record Century Fader. The brand new LP is what you have come to expect from the electric group: a rich blend of indie rock grit and pop chic that is finished off with a teaspoon of new wave honey. Songs like “Thunder” showcase just the type of rich atmospheres the band can create, ones thick with marvelous basslines, supple synth melodies, and sustained guitar chords that float about. Then you have tracks like “Hang Around” which pay tribute to ‘80s synth-pop legends like Pet Shop Boys with their grandiose style. The group has crafted a record that is faithful to them and those that love them; it is refined enough to feel completely new. The band will be playing at the Boston City Hall Plaza on September 28th. We are streaming the groovy track “At The Aquarium” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

Alex Lahey at The Independent

Last week Alex Lahey came out to The Independent last week and it was just the show we were hoping for. Lahey’s got an approachable and fun energy. Her songs are youthful rock n’ roll with some feels like that early 2000’s rock but with messages that are more current. There’s something empowering and solid about the music and their delivery. The crowd bumping and jumping along to songs like “Am I Doing it Right?” Lahey is on tour now and we suggest fans of power pop fun go check her out while she’s around these parts. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
