Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-01-29 
Art noise, tape and layer manipulation. Hands down some of the best, if not THE best I’ve ever heard, ever. A perfect amalgam of hypnotic drones, interesting samples, and guitar. Space is employed on several tracks, silence between chords to an exalted level. Not for the queasy, the faint of heart or the attention challenged dj. Honestly, I really cant recommend this stuff more. Fans of the finest, Koji Asano, Makoto Kawabata.

1) sparse guitar chords with almost dead air pauses between to start, fills voids with spooky voices and sounds, after about 6 minutes the chords get heavier, wow, totally epic, hauntingly dreamlike
2) a slow drum machine plod with a sexy slow hypnotic loop that soars, ascends and dives around your drug addled brain (well at least mine) and ends with about 3 minutes of the most beautiful narcotic drone ever put to tape
3) more chiming lovely chords at first for a minute or two, then it quiets down, fades out to a false ending at 3 minutes, midway it picks up to a near beat then vocal samples, layered appear
4) totally chill, like a locked groove with tones and swirls
5) a creepy true industrial creepy noise piece with echoey reverby voices
6) layered chill creepy noise, midway a disturbing difficult noise wash crashes the party
7) builds into the most epic noise and tone wash, looping, that you can imagine
