Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-01-12 
One long track, if someone told me this was Glenn Branca I’d believe them: “symphony” of detuned guitars chiming and strumming, harmonizing, dissonant, noisey yet beautiful. 20+ minutes but worth every second. For fans of early Sonic Youth, No Wave, ambient strangeness.

Begins slowly, sparse with space, gets into some noisier, guitar rockets then the heavy strumming gets more prevalent, then falls quieter midway, pensive, then goes into a rhythmic if hypnotic dissonant chord progression that lasts a while, goes into the end
