Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-02-12
Creative instrumental pieces that incorporate lots of electronics, samples, with acoustic guitar picking. Electronic in that there are many moments where break-beats feel like they are just on the verge of exploding out (and they do in some cases). Great stuff, local musician from Morocco. For fans of Idiom Creak, Matmos.

FCC clean. My picks: 1, 9

1) wow, really interesting bed of percussion, slow phrased acoustic guitar and vocalizations, like Bobby McFerrin on a ton of acid, things get dense while keeping melodic
2) disjunct electronics, percussion, sounds like its trying burst into a break beat but just cant
3) minimal guit+percussion flirts with break beats then finally submits
4) guitar arpeggios with funky minimal electro beat
5) minimal collage, beats, tones, samples, again flirting w/ break beats
6) starts very quiet, sparse, evolves to another collage of sounds
7) quieter, guitar heavy
8) quirky use of electro-percussion, break-beats
9) voice samples, breaks, accordian, name it
10) guitar, folky almost, w/ subtle electronics
11) sparse piano playing, space/dead air in places
