Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-03-01 
Primo post rock krautrock experimental that combines electronic sampling noise elements with big post rock guitars, drums. Organic. All instrumental. For fans of Mogwai, Godspeed, Do Make Say Think. Mostly pretty chill. But dramatic and big in places. All great.

1) (5:46) fades in noise, organic, drums and beat appear and proggy posty coolness ensues, ends cold. 2) (9:24) super chill but midway picks up 3)* (5:32) a little more "sampley" but cool noisy with post rock brushed drums urgent beat. 4) (3:45) cool kinda chill, good beats, drums, noise. 5)* (6:24) begins disjunct but, sparse yet dense (?) and kinda swingy weird, breaks down toward end, picks up and ends kinda pink floydy meets swans 6) (3:15) very quiet sparse 7) (13:47) begins quiet then some good heavy pounding fuzz bursts and cool beats ENDS AFTER 6:43, 7:04 remaining, then the old hidden track at 1:28 remaining, sparse minimal noise.
