Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-09-26
Experimental deconstructed blues, taking the basic elements of blues guitar/riffs and looping them, long repetitive, hypnotic. What Brian Eno and other noise/experimentalists have done with the basic elements of music/sound by taking their bare bones and layering, looping, this guy has done with the blues. While others (Doo Rag, Bob Log, John Spencer, et al) have plundered blues in “alternative universe” ways, this guy truly strips it down in a way you’ve never heard. Songs are long, take on hypnotic qualities, an ode to what blues is about. Like a fine distillate of what makes the genre work. Trippy.

1) one lick looped, hypnotic
2) strange desperate vocals over loopy sick blues
3) minimal pitzicato fiddle+percussion for first ~1:30, false ending then spastic bowing, epic, long
4) ~16 minutes of long repetitive strumming, hammering home the point, holy yowza
