“What we need is more guitars,” tweeted Mike Rodriguez of As Built PR on February 13. A week later, the Boston-based marketing and promotions company unveiled SOFT PYRAMIDS’ debut EP, a detached-cool rock and roll afterparty racket that recalls a late-’70s Lower East Side punk attitude with nary and electronic device in sight (or sound). Whereas standout track “Dwightsnake” may or may not be about Doc Gooden replacing David Coverdale in a glam metal band, it does enough aurally to align the young Cambridge quartet with the slim-fit garage rock revivalists from a decade ago (Longwave, Moving Units). Soft Pyramids self-release the intriguing Electric Scenes EP March 10 at Precinct in Somerville (the east-end site of the Deep Heaven Now festival) on a stellar northeasterner bill alongside former MP3 of the Week’ers Mount Peru and Portland, Maine’s Brenda, but you can grab the “Dwightsnake” mp3 below.
