Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-03-28
Fans of Eno, Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine (especially Kevin Shields’ work on Lost in Translation) should definitely take note. This, from the one sheet promo: 15 Degrees Below Zero's CD "New Travel" builds upon the process oriented soundscapes of previous releases to create new refined, compositional narratives that emerge between the planes of discord and melody. The eleven tracks explore transitory spaces of cinematic like sound interiors, digital and analog atmospheres accompanied by guitar, piano, and sampled melodies -- clipped, recontextualized and re-presented.

1) starts with sparse samples but builds into a lush Flying Saucer Attack/My Bloody Valentine repeating guitar hypnotism
2) looping tones, spacey and pretty for first half then a simplistic minor toned guitar arpeggio songlike structure (without any gothisms)
3) spacey, echoey
4) chill, noisey, electro slightly, grows into a wash of noise
5) noisier, pulsating
6) rhythmic epic and intense, warlike march
7) chill, mellow
8) mellowness continues, narcotic waves, goes through many moods
9) chill, pretty
10) noisey first part turns quite serene and pretty, with samples
11) shimmering and beautiful
