Caural Mirrors for Eyes
- Words: Anna Balkrishna
- Label: Mush
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
With his second full-length, Mirrors for Eyes, Caural (born Zachary Mastoon) doesn't so much propel the glitch-hop format forward as fill in the spaces left behind. It's a quietly rich album, a rusty treasure chest spilling over with broken diamonds and gilded leaves. Over a fairly straightforward boom-bap framework, Caural embroiders his tapestry of undulating harps and flutes, pixie-dusted washes of audio fuzz, and vocoder-filtered angel choruses. Admittedly, cuts like "Re-experience Any Moment You Choose" tailgate Prefuse 73's earlier works a little closely, but they hold a sense of sweetness and wonderment all their own.
