Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-05-25 
Sollid hipster noise/electronic rock from NYC. Veers from arty electronics to bashout noise rock. Way too cool for your mom, even though she blew the Butthole Surfers while on acid, “back in the day”. Should come with a surgeon generals warning that it may cause roommate abandonment, landlord eviction, girlfriend leaving, irreconcilable differences/divorce. Fans of Throbbing Gristle, early Cabaret Voltaire, Hair Police, Load Records, KK Rampage, Brick on rollerskates, head injuries.


1) starts with blippy electronic, very minimal and chill for a minute then crunchy epic noise/industrial plod beat onslaught with distraught swallowed vocals
2) mashed up frenetic but ploddy simultaneously, for the wicked and beyond repair
3) slow weirdness, heavy, sick noise, doesn’t disappoint nor bore, electronoise the way its supposed to be, ebbs and flows
4) noise rock: rockin stuff with a sick beat, loud guitar, screamo distorto vocals
5) minimal electronic blippiness to begin, develops a beat, then a lovely narcotic flow somehow, like an angry Flying Saucer Attack after a bottle of tequila with drunken lyrics/vocals
6) bashout electronoise rock, holy smokes!!
7) an evil tone, buzzsaw guitar that eviscerates beelzebub herself (the fake blonde one), urgent, pensive and bad bad bad
8) rock, as in a “real” band feel, drums etc, a good bashout fun filled extravaganza of passion
