We're far too dignified to make a 'wonder of the world' gag, but the fourth album by The Pyramids is almost that remarkable. See, they formed in Ohio circa 1972, when cosmic jazz luminaries (Sun Ra, for example) were dotted around America’s musical landscape. Then, pioneeringly but logically, they explored their African-American heritage by actually going to Africa, before returning to music after some 35 years' absence. What's extraordinary about 'Otherworldly' – its expressive saxophone blare, heavy afro-funk workouts, hepcat proto-rapping and unyielding positive vibes – is that it feels like these dudes haven't aged a damn day.
