Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-01-16
Excellent noise collage with cool rhythmic loops, organic, analog, in flavor. Quiet ambient in overall tone but utilizes harsh and abrasive bursts and samples to get its overall point across. Great stuff!

1) looped guitar and singing sample, strange, cool
2) slow fade-in, subdued industrial noise loop with bursts of sounds that get harsh after half way through
3) a more chill choral feel to the loops, a mellow bassline appears and takes things into the realm of melody with a distinct slow plod beat, musical
4) very dense, melodic
5) minimal strangeness
6) more random feeling, minimal and chill 7) builds into a sorta lowfi noise loop, dronifest
8) kind of a tribal feel, chill
9) droney experimental but I keep hearing a chapman stick loop which makes this kinda proggy, almost Frippian
10) a constant tone with other looped bursts of sounds hypnotic yet interesting
11) a mostly chill, if slightly dreamlike, creepy piece
12) kind of a high tension fast loop with a strange funky guitar lick superimposed
13) a faster paced rhythm
14) strange looping vocal sample, overall dark and foreboding and strange
