“Pyramid Of The Moon” is a companion release to the album – it includes two tracks that are not going to appear on the album (title track + remix).
Never originally intended for release, “Pyramid of the Moon” was born as a scribbled idea in drummer Gerhardt Fuch’s journal while on tour, hatched in the studio as an extended jam captured while recording the forthcoming album, Pyramid of the Sun. The true story could not sound more fabled if we tried: Jeremy deVine of Temporary Residence was accidentally sent rough mixes by the recording engineer, followed by a panicked e-mail from the members of Maserati cautioning that they were rough sketches that should be ignored. Among those mixes was “Pyramid of the Moon,” which instantly became an office favorite. The band were convinced to complete it and release it, with mixing duties assigned to deVine and John Congleton (The Roots, Baroness). The result is 9 minutes of Big Beat-influenced psych-rock that paints a vivid mental picture of exhilarating car chases and death-defying spy stunts. In other words, it’s another brilliant Maserati banger. Not to be overshadowed, the b-side features a side-long remix by The Field, wherein the original track’s natural propulsion is carved into a meditative counterpoint disco epic that draws a straight line from Maserati to Steve Reich. Limited edition vinyl-only release. These tracks will not appear on the forthcoming Pyramid of the Sun album.
