Chewed Corners

Mu-Ziq - Chewed Corners

While his last album, 2007's Duntisbourne Abbots Soulmate Devastation Technique, was at times as harrowing and miserable as its title suggests, Chewed Corners is almost the polar opposite, relaxed, self-possessed, and a pleasure to listen to. The innovation is subtle and inviting and it exudes happiness. It also foregrounds probably one of Mike's most important characteristics - something that has always shone through his far-reaching experimentation and kept it sounding both personal and accessible - his knack for great melody and lush arrangements. Chewed Corners sidesteps affiliations to any genre.
