Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-09-18
Local guitar duo pushing the boundaries of space and time and especially spaciness. Trippy sounscapes, experimentalism, treated guitars, general outboard effect and pedal madness, but nothing self-indulgent. All very listenable if not downright hypnotic and acid flashback inducing. The Bawd should take note

1) echoey looping ambient treated guitar-work, quite serene, shifts to a noisier loop at 5min and devolves
2) echoey loop that starts sparse then gets dense, noisy, brief nice intro to next track
3) another chill, trippy long evolving organic soundscape
4) chill hard panned stereo space guitar a la early John Ambercrombie, cool stuff
5) guitar experimentalism, looping upon itself a la Frippertronics but more playful and arty
6) quiet, creepy, buried noise guitar for first part then guitar comes in full but overall minimal and chill
7) pure space guitar, effects treated, looping drones, long and epic
