Ben Leathley How is this band not loved more? Somewhere between indie and post-rock, Human Pyramids craft such joyful multi-instrumental music it just makes me happy every time I listen to them. Planet Shhh! is a great album and I also love the artwork, which is an added bonus.

Planet Shhh! is the debut album from Human Pyramid, the solo project of Paul Russell, the London-based composer/mulch musical instrumentalist.

This awesome album has been crafted by mixing the grand orchestration (formed by stringed and wind instruments) and jubilant choir-led chamber music such as Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No.9. It will send warm feelings to any listener as if you were floating on air. And the touching sound created by the lovely melodies may bring you to tears.

In addition, the opening track, "Tall Tales," is like entering the beginning of a fairy tale, and "Relapse," is very very happy tune. Once you start listening to these tunes, you will find it hard to stop!!

This summer, the new name "Human Pyramids" will be added to the list of awesome artists from Central Belt Area of Scotland such as Mogwai, Belle And Sebastian, Franz Ferdinand, Travis, Teenage Fanclub and Aztec Camera.

Don't miss the new masterpiece of post-rock/neo-classical music commended by BBC, UK!! For fans of Jonsi's "Go" album and The Flaming Lips' "The Soft Bulletin" album.
