"After months of production, tweaking and final adjustments the album finally see's the light of day, clocking in at 46 minutes in length, with 9 tracks in total, each cut individually incorporating Smyglyssna's signature sound whilst offering a new funkier and more diverse edge to his production approach. Through careful combination of sophisticated software use, along with more traditional analog production techniques, Smyglyssna creates a sound that looks to the past for reference whilst simultaneously defining a take on the future. Working with a variety of hip hop sensibilities along with a variety of differing electro and techno sound aesthetics, We Can Fix It works on a variety of levels providing listeners with a body of work documentative of both a generation of music along with his own vast array of musical influences. Cut's such as 'Mights It Be's And If It Were's' look to early '90s Detroit scraping through remnants of Carl Craig's 69 project and Stacey Pullen's Kosmik Messenger outputs whilst reinventing their take on the format of electronic funk by breathing new forms of synthesis into the construction of these types of groove. 'Triangular Ears' adopts a similarly fresh take on the format of experimental and avant hip hop by providing a backdrop of crisp, distorted drum beats alongside a more alternative selection of playful melodies and tight programming creating a groove at home in a variety of environments. 'Foaming Prairie' provides a beautifully crafted momentary breath of heart felt ambience to calm and console the listener whilst also providing a small insight into an alternative side of the smyglyssna sound. In all, an album of constant diversity, rhythmic essentials and heartfelt emotion packed with an obsession of sound and invention."
