Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-05-03 
Epic noise, noise rock. Feedback sustain, huge droney and harmonic dissonance. From Oakland, this stuff is high end. Sounds live. Simple beats and noise in the tradition of Boy Dirt Car, Esplendor Geometrico, early Cabaret Voltaire. Merzbow and Lee Ranaldo, Controlled Bleeding also come to mind.

1) (4:17) lovely droney distorto Noise 2)* (3:20) simple plod beat w vocals, excellent sustain feedback 3) (10:18) noise, raw, organic, simple beat appears 4)*h (12:58) slow fade in of feedback sustain, 3 min in a crushing slow plod beat enters, ends cold after long denoumeux 5) (13:03) lovely begins sparse but grows hypnotic toward end 6) (10:13) slow plod beat, Throbbing Gristle sick w buried vocs, ends w ~30 sec remain, pot it down
