Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-01-30 
Culled from live performances, this experimentalism ranges from pretty ambience and Matmos styled electro collage to brutal noise, infernal racket. Some bordering on power-electronics, most dipping from the old school well of Merzbow and Solmania, but just enough intellectualism to strand some tracks in the realm of some art installation at the MoMA.

1) difficult hard panned noises, sparse, midway difficult stuff starts, painful
2) sample art, bits of songs, broadcasts, looped, almost musical
3) treated phone tone with bells, pretty and almost ambient, serene
4) harsh difficult noise, not interesting
5) harsh difficult noise, but very interesting, looped, layered, low tones swirling around white noise, very distorted, great
6) difficult turntable noise, harsh, brief
7) over the top distorto noise, brutal, bordering on power-electronics, great stuff
8) high pitched disturbing tone, brief
9) cheesy pop music sample looped, devolves into a mess, Walking In LA sounds a lot like fucking in LA
10) high pitched metallic that disappear midway, with mechanical sounds, very old school industrial noise
11) noisey feedbacky, squelch and squeals
12) blurps and bursts of fucked up’ness with some voice samples trying to burst out
13) infernal racket, distorto insanity
14) cool old-school looped electro-noise, Esplendor Geometrico
15) mostly layers of high pitched noise
16) looping bending electronic tones, subtle noise, turns ambient, envitronmental midway, quiet, sound of rain
