Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-05-13
Abstract arty improv ensemble using traditional jazz-like instruments as well as home-made and found/broken ones. Most of this is sparse, clanging bursts of twisted dissonant dimentia, but some kicks in rhythmically and goes places. Good stuff that is borderline downtown avante jazz. FCC clean.

1) free clunky improv instruments, treated sample/voice-over, hick’like yelling about “get yo’self a good job!”
2) very chill, subtle bass, trumpet, sounds
3) very very chill, splattering of sounds, minimal
4) like 3
5) like 3 and 4, this with flutes, whistles
6) veritable cacophony of cymbal and string noise
7) rhythmic “strange” feel if not outright silly, childlike melodies and tone
8) toylike tone, toy pianos, simple beat and feel
9) mostly feedback and reed instruments, abstract
10) bit of a twisted rag-time feel to this, out of tune and sickly, midway it deconvolutes into improv collage, voice/found sound sample treated adds to this immensely
11) a real song feel, sorta like a bad blues bar band on way too much acid, falling around drunk and getting in trouble
