"Phinery just dropped a doozy with Vessel. Split between Nico Niquo and OBA, Vessel comes between two lengthy tracks by each artist. Side A is Nico Niquo with _Glass Cypher,_ a very patient and calculated shimmer of sounds, waving like a distant mirage, but it_s really just right in your face about it. There_s a story withing _Glass Cypher_ that_s detectable, and one must venture this bard_s quest alone, as all outcomes will process the sounds differently, and may even end up sleeping on a pile of bath salts. Who knows!? _Glass Cypher_ could be the next Ambien_ or straight up calming narcotic. Side B is OBA, who_s _Under A Dark Ray,_ which are the black spots one sees after getting knocked in the head too hard. Or hit the duster with too much force. _Under A Dark Ray_ is part of the Vessel that takes one-to-know-one, really, harboring such distance and longing (within each note) on a peaceful vibe, streaming a pleasantness that flutters and tampers with listeners_ skulls like the cotton they actually put in some candies. OBA perfectly compliments Nico Niquo in Vessel, both in musical ability, production technique, and overall calming effects that window an audible hallucination throughout."
