Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-06-03
Another shining example of how mid-sized American cities force dark creativity out of the lower/middle class. Straight outta Fresno we have here some dreamy/nightmare’ish sample art, electronic based DJ mixing. Mostly ultra dark downtempo, grinding rumbles dark reverb, spooky vocs, this simultaneously soothes yet disturbs. Skirting all urban facades, he composes from the heart and a slow grinding pelvis. Featured live on KZSU (Stirling’s Approx./Press n’ Release) this guy has more talent in his little pinkie than…

1) live voice, intro
2) cool downtempo, trippy
3) radio promo sample collage intro, leads into seriously ill mid paced electro
4) soulful fem vocs, Take 5 sample at end
5) downtempo cool electro
6) FCCs- noise scratching intro, great samples about “last man on earth” and “Mom”:
three “Shits” after ~3 minutes: “the stress of my neighborhood going to SHIT, my step dad’s body going to SHIT, its causing my mother’s nerves to go to SHIT”- this is absolutely the best track if you do the easy edits
7) dark reverbed jazzy beats turns class-A downtempo w/ conga
8) way chill ambient downtempo beat builds with minimal guit and fem voc samples, lush dreamy sublime narcotic, great!
9) dark slow sexy w/ fem vocs and subtle fender Rhodes over a deep scratchy rumble, wow
10) things get darker, slower, rumbling/noisey creepy and super sexy downtempo, even more, with Poe quotes- fuck!
11) Beautiful windy rumbling drones with pretty keys, beatless yet organically rhythmic
12) ohhh, hilarious soft porn sample w/ noise and drones turns kick ass downtempo creepy beat
13) hilarious hip hop spoof sample mostly, great
14) dark slow approach w/ hip hop sentiment in voc delivery, play this one if anything, “ends” after ~9 min, then some silence followed by a droney swirling noise fest collage that reprises the entire album’s notable samples, awesome
