Look to your left, now look to your right. Chances are someone in your vicinity is part of the massive Sandpeople crew. But unless you are standing in the bedroom of Sapient (and if you are, um, congratulations?), you still might be unaware of the sheer depth and creativity that thrives within Portland's mightiest beats and rhymes collective. A substantial departure from his breakthrough solo disc Barrels for Feathers, the just-released Tusks! is the first volume of a series of recordings (under the umbrella title, Eaters) in which Sapient expands on the hiphop narrative and offers something beyond your standard collection of braggadocio verses and neck-exercising beats. Tusks! resides in that cozy middle ground between instrumental hiphop (think Madlib's Beat Konducta Vol 1–2: Movie Scenes) and beat-driven indie rock (think Ratatat). It's not your standard hiphop disc, which is exactly the point. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
