Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-03-14
This is technically jazz if only because its created by notable jazz musicians. If so, then this is some far-out stuff because it is mostly lush drones/walls of sublime noise. Smatterings of horns and free-jazz drum/guitar stylings are present as well, betraying the jazz sources. “The sounds of beer bottles and pirated AM radioVery beautiful trippy and hypnotic stuff. Members include many from The Exploding Star Orchestra, a fine avante jazz outfit from Chicago.

1) a dense wall of lush sound with improv drum and guitar smatterings build to a cresendo after ~6 min then chill back out til the end
2) chill drone with spaces horn embellishments, echoey, atmospheric
3) solo electric guitar arpeggios that are trippy with subtle noises in back
4) pretty and droney, with tinkling and atmospherics, radio friendly length
