Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-10-15
Local artist, solo guitar noise a la Lee Ranaldo, Caspar Brotzman. Fine layers of distortion, looping industrial machinery effects, hypnotic and droning mostly, like the sound of working in the bowels of a futuristic steel foundry on the planet moon Titan with robot drones standing guard, heavy artillery at their disposal.

1) metallic industrial clanging effect turns heavy harsh drone
2) intense, beautiful noise wash, narcotic
3) 1 min, dischordant guitar bashing and plucking out of tune
4) guitar solo noise
5) low tones, bass-like, turns almost musical, vague melody and harmony to the plucked tones, turns looping hypno-noise
6) takes on a decidedly synth timbre, pretty layers, beautiful noise, angsty, before shifting gears and returning
7) sparse beginning, builds to yet another hellish miasma of noise
8) low rumble with cool looping harmonics/sounds, great
9) more looping, downtuned, clanging dissonance
10) sparser, turns into looping bell-like timbre, less noisey, more arty
11) more looping dissonance
