Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-11-06
Noise rock extraordinaire, two man band from Minnesota smears tape loops, fuzz bass, drums, desperate vocals, no-wave/prog elements even. Fans of No New York era Sonic Youth, Swans, F/i, Will To Live, Sink Manhatten, take note, swallow hard (p.s. I caught this duo opening for Burmese at the Hemlock recently….what a show!!).

1) wall of noise-rock, deeply buried vocals, swirling madness, urgent drums
2) starts sparse, noise, drum bursts, builds in dissonance, very No-New York old school noise rock
3) near prog feel in bass chords, somewhat more chill, song-like
4) slide bass trippy intro, launches into free-form spazz
5) disjunct no-wave drums, fuzz vocs strong, reminds me of ape has killed ape somehow
6) twisted, songlike, trippy and cool
7) Long track: starts very chill, creepy, builds to noise loops, all pretty restrained and dark
8) slight electro element to drums, wash/drone of noise, buried melodic vocs
