If you didn't spot the AIC, or are averse to chains, a pair of traditional VH XY-Wings will solve this puzzle. The first one unlocks the second one.

First XY-Wing is 12-3 pivoted in r6c9 with pincers at r6c1 and r7c9. Thus, r7c1<>3. This elimination, along with a quick rinse, takes the puzzle to the next stage here:

Code:

+--------------+-----------+---------------+
| 7    19  6   | 4  12  3  | 29  5    8    |
| 124  18  128 | 9  126 5  | 7   1236 1234 |
| 1249 5   3   | 7  8   16 | 269 126  1249 |
+--------------+-----------+---------------+
| 8    2   4   | 1  5   9  | 3   7    6    |
| 139  179 17  | 23 46  46 | 8   12   5    |
| 13   6   5   | 23 7   8  | 4   9    12   |
+--------------+-----------+---------------+
| 12   138 128 | 6  9   7  | 5   4    23   |
| 5    347 27  | 8  134 14 | 269 236  239  |
| 6    34  9   | 5  34  2  | 1   8    7    |
+--------------+-----------+---------------+

Second XY-Wing is -127 pivoted in r8c3 with pincers at r5c3 and r7c1. Thus r56c1<>1 and r7c3<>1. stte
