The balance captured on Caural's Mirrors for Eyes originates from experience in recording for at least a couple of labels, but it's also due to scattered schooling. Before assuming his moniker, producer/electronic musician Zachary Mastoon studied jazz, Southeast Asian music and other genres, generously applying this elaborate scope to his experiments. Mirrors for Eyes offers sampled breaks, warm, slowly dissolving noise and a handful of guests (such as Hrishikesh Hirway) for a filling, yet mostly digestible record. The transparently labeled 'Hallucination Broadcastâ?� is strewn with a dense mix of everything that enriches the album: perpetual ghostly static loops, occasional crashing beats and live mixed hand percussion. But Mastoon juggles multiple personalities on Mirrors, and just as he shoots grimy synth stabs into faux mellotron textures ('I Won't Race Youâ?�), he warms up too much, eventually slowing to an after-dinner guitar-and-organ vibe ('Sending You Colorsâ?�).
