Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-08-20 
Live experimental, avante with an improv feel mostly. Free jazz drum stylings, spacey synths, fuzzy basses, all sorts of cool stuff. Nothing particularly harsh/wall of noise, but also nothing new agey or goatee stroking either. Most tracks are on the long side and take a few minutes to build upon themselves, so patience is required. For fans of downtown type avante, Tzadik/Zorn type artists. These guys/gals are about as local as it gets: David Bug, aka Leikam.

1) starts off sparse, fuzzy analog synths and rumbling bass, percussion thrown in for an overall dark and creepy vibe
2) free-jazz meets distorto noise, dominated by improv drums, lots of good fuzzy noisey bass, kicks into a rock beat near end, cool
3) sparser, with drums, noises, and treated voice/samples, drums pick up a driving beat midway, things get denser, then they fall apart again
4) 8 seconds
5) very sparse, fuzzy stuff, tinkling piano, drums appear quietly, midway it gets noisier, still fairly chill though
6) very sparse to start, drum solo’ing, about 8:30 in a slow noise rock beat and feel emerges for a minute or two, then it falls to sparseness, even close to dead air at ~8:30, builds up again to some sparse improv
7) treated vocalization (or very vocal sounding source), spacey ambience underlies, improv feel dominates, with drums and subtle sound sources
