Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-04-12 
Haino teams up with two Belgian jazz/experimental musicians to create abstract atmospheric balms an gronks and crashes, with Haino’s challenging performance based vocalizations. Haino is one of the most important Japanese musicians having spearheaded their influential experimental, noise, and rock scenes. The guy has been around since the 70’s and has collaborated with, well, everyone. For starters: Faust, Boris, Derek Bailey, Joey Baron, Peter Brötzmann, Lee Konitz, Loren Mazzacane Connors, Charles Gayle, Earl Kuck, Bill Laswell, Musica Transonic, Stephen O'Malley, Makigami Koichi, Ayuo, Merzbow, Oren Ambarchi, Jim O'Rourke, John Zorn, Yamantaka Eye, John Duncan, Fred Frith, Charles Hayward and John Butcher. Who’s who, correct?

1)* (25:49) begins as abstract noise collage, drums appear and the piece slowly evolves into a jammy spaced out atmospheric balm with jazzy drums and soaring electronics, then devolves again into noise collage improv 2) (19:24) noise collage, midway Haino’s abstract (annoying?) vocalizations appear 3) (5:11) starts very quiet, remains very minimal with sparse percussion and guitar embellishments, noises 4) (8:37) cool drony noises with flute, denser collage but still minimal, midway Haino’s harsh vocalizations start, total counterpoint to the chill minimalism, so very Japanoise
