Mortal Mirror is the second and final album by D.C. trio Quix*O*tic (not to be confused with NYC band Quixotic). The band’s quirky blend of elements — dark, gothic bass and guitar tones tethered to jazzy percussion, or funeral march rhythms underlying smoky nightclub vocals — was highly unusual and staggeringly effective. In their short-lived career, core members and sisters Christina (guitar) and Mira Billotte (drums) created haunting and memorable music, on both their loopy covers of classic tunes and their original compositions (highlights here include the sexy, jazzy “Anonymous Face”, the psychedelic “The Breeze,” and the surly, stabby “Ice Cream Sundae”). Their take on Black Sabbath’s “Lord of This World” is a fantastic meeting of dirty, metallic guitar and early Grace Slick howl, and the sisters’ vocal performances on R&B singer Billy Stewart’s “Sitting in the Park” and Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like It Is” are stunningly soulful, though the barren pulse of the bass and the empty, echoing space around the lyrics lend sorrowful tint to both songs. Quix*O*tic were hugely adventurous; luckily we have two documents of their brief time together.
