Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-04-04 
Avante project by duo made of percussionist Glenn Kotche (Wilco) and bassist Darin Gray (Tweedy) (originally included Jim O'Roarke). Elements of jazz, world/Latin and experimental noise wrapped into one. Upright bass, Brazilian percussion, vibes, tape loops, found sounds, lovely female vocals used as an instrument (not a vehicle to deliver lyrics). Could be filed under jazz or experimental. Recorded in a multi day session in Rio (hence the brasillian flavor). Beyond excellent.


1) (2:40) worldy feel, kalimba type, with low fi studio sound at start 2) (4:45) excellent disjunct feel, with cool psych toned guitar, still brasillian in the cool rhythm 3) (4:43) studio sounds intro, intense drumming. 4)* (4:45) fem vocal centered chantlike, jazzy Latin flavored romp appears off time 5) (2:42) cool low fi noise loops, sampled electro, experimental 6) (3:43) melodic simple vocs and dreamy nursery rhyme vibes 7)* (2:43) studio sounds at start, drums, percussion only w some minimal bass tones 8)* (6:40) like track 4 this has a killer upright bass romp, Latin flavor and fem vocals, subtle sample noises toward end, super cool 9) (5:32) experimental noisey and improv feel 10) (6:54) off time nearly rocking with male non English vocalizations, tribal almost 11) (5:18) slow quiet starts with layered vocals and subtle noise loops.
