4 stars A surprising collection of tunes from veteran bass player Joey Vera on his A Chinese Firedrill project.

7 songs all with different musical foundations, tied together by strong atmopsheres and songs interlocking; as well as some subtle details in the soundscape repeated throughout.

Mainly experimental in style, but the heavy use of synths as well as the laid-back vocal style here gives this release strong similarities to OSI - one of numerous bands and projects Joey Vera has bean involved in. Recommended to fans of that band, especially those that liked their second release Free.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
