Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-11-16
Droney synth noise, but “prickly”, no relying so much on low end drones but waves of sawtooth and pulse, looped and demanding. Five long tracks of hypnotism, relentless, but not harsh or painful. Just good methadone for us recovering addicts who cant take methadone. For fans of Eno, Merzbow, Tangerine Dream, and a skipping Kraftwerk record. This guy has been involved with Mouthus (if you don’t know who they are, run, don’t walk to the cd drawers) and is involved with running the AWESOME No Fun record label. Pick any track, all good.

1) pulsing tone, almost rhythmic, pensive and foreshadowing
2) an electronic drone with pulsing low tones
3) looping electronic noise, not drony in the low end sense but certainly hypnotic
4) low end pulse/sawtooth wave, varies in a creepy Throbbing Gristle sort of way
5) first 2/3 is another slow loop of tones with prickly synth, like getting your aura combed, not rubbed, then an off kilter synth loop evolves and is amplitude modulated and goes haywire, at least for my fucked up brain
