The Long Beach dynamo shares his second project of 2017
It’s been an eventful few weeks in the life for Pyramid Vritra, a do-it-all on a prolific five-year streak.
Since his 2012 debut album, Pyramid, the Long Beach native rapper and producer has shared a torrent of projects, both long-form solo ventures and collaborative extended plays, that straddle the line between avant-rap and deeply-conceptual sound experiments. Just a few weeks back, Vritra and Matt Martians rekindled their Odd Future production team moniker, Jet Age of Tomorrow, for the back-by-popular-demand, God’s Poop or Clouds?.
Today, as a quick follow-up, Vritra has shared the new album, HAL, which shares its name with the sentient onboard computing system of Stanley Kubrick’s iconic 2001: A Space Oddysey. It’s his first solo project since last year’s Yellowing LP.
