Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-11-01 
Experimental techno with rock injections, prog. Seattle artist who’s roots are in old school hardcore/noise rock from Tucson (see 1981-86 Corporate Whores, Useless Pieces of Shit). While his previous new contribution Noise Hurts Babies was primarily industrial type noise this one falls squarely into the realm of beats. A little too raw and dirty to be considered straight “dance” its still beat laden, funky, disco’y in places and cool/strange. See also works of Borful Tang,

1) (1:19) upbeat techo’y tone, happy then crashes 2) (2:48) upbeat funky techno, like sly or stevie hosting a rave 3) (3:12) cool garagey techno 4) (2:32) cool funkiness with trippy synth and searing guitars 5) (4:57) mellow trippy synth rock, with bird sounds at start and end 6) (2:20) guitar driven prog rock feel, classic feel but with some really nice guitar tones 7)* (3:13) mid paced buzzy, with heavy synth bass, phone message machine sample at start and end 8) (12:19) dark tones contrasted with bird sounds, ethereal feel, then after 4 min a piano appears with female vocalization loop and it begins to build and becomes a cool techno’y soulful beat driven piece with disco like “string” tones, evolves to guitars and overall chill tone
