Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2016-09-21 
Cellist Alison Chesley uses manipulated cello and collaborators from such bands as Sleep, Neurosis, Rachels to provide drums, piano and electronic effects. Likely to be filed under Apocalyptic Folk or Forest Metal, this has a heavy tone while feeling experimental and atmospheric, veering into genuine metal at times. This is what the metalheads are into these days. For fans of Oren Ambarchi, Sunn, Sarah Neufeld, 4AD. All instrumental.

1)* (5:10) quiet somber cello trades with searing metallic guitar layers 2) (2:54) rockin tribal subtle with droney piano chords 3) (8:50) begins with heavy drone guitar chords, gives way to ethereal angelic vocals, guitar returns w piano and it carries on more atmospheric and droney 4)* (4:45) layers of cello melodies over minimal piano 5) (3:44) still mellow like 4 but cello has fuzz treatment in places 6) (4:33) cool looping samples build then fall away to quiet piano 7)* (3:41) pounding drums and metal guitars, dark doomy rockin 8)* (5:07) beautiful segments contrast with some harsher cello, very cinematic, epic
