Sixtoo Chewing On Glass & Other Miracle Cures
- Words: Matthew Newton
- Label: Ninja Tune
A dark aural descent, Chewing On Glass & Other Miracle Cures explores the boundaries of instrumental hip-hop, discovering harmony in both beauty and decay. And while Sixtoo's excursion to the fringe yields a wealth of multi-layered compositions, it's the fresh elements that will perk listeners' ears. Experimenting with acidic rock guitars and grimy basslines, Sixtoo reveals a new stylistic approach while retaining his signature murky sound. And although tracks like "Sidewinders" and "Boxcutter Emporium" evoke a startling sense of emotion, it is the raw power of "Storm Clouds and Silver Linings" (featuring Can's Damo Suzuki on vocals) that foreshadows great things from this Canadian beat conductor.
