Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-08-19
Instrumental ambient/space-rock, experimental soundscapes. "Low-fi" in that its recorded in a home studio usinga roomful of various much loved sound sources, but it doesn’t scream out “low fi” really at all. Trippy heady stuff, most songs long, meandering. Pass the bong. For fans of Biota, Flying Saucer Attack, Bethany Curve, Bowery Electric, 7% Solution, American Analog Set, early Stereolab.

1) slow to develop space rock, upbeat, ambient prettiness and layers of trippiness, Flying Saucer Attack comes to mind, 2) slower more chill, early Stereolab comes to mind
3) a nice idea but meanders around a sparse melody and doesnt do anything
4) ambience
5) strummy piece
6) mix of electronics, some electro acoustics and found sound field records, rhythmic
7) mellow, loopy dark, cool
8) simple theme, melody, looped and echoed, low fi
9) very ambient, guitar based, almost Eno'esque for first 4-5 minutes then builds, develops more amplitude, density
10)lush soundscapes, multi-Instrumental, dramatic
11) trippy intro leads into simple mindful beat with organ, layers of noise and space, pretty cool if you don’t mind that it doesn’t really go anywhere (but must we always go “somewhere”?)
12) really beautiful lush orchestral drone, very long (17min), hypnotic, careful very long fade out, with a good 45-60 seconds of dead air at end (caution!)
