Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-12-22
Local outfit that uses organic instruments to create soundbeds and washes of hypno-drone, experimentalism. They get lumped in with the Root Strata scene (Barn Owl, the whole On Land festival) often. Great stuff, setting the bar for contemporary ambient music that was originated by Eno, Harold Budd, Rober Fripp, early Windham Hill artists and Reich, Cage, Hans Otte before them.

1) briefest (3:22), looping strumming, dense strings and tone embellishments, musical if hypnotic/repetitive
2) long track but worth it (46 min), pretty sound bed of arpeggio strings, flutelike tones adding melody, swirling and very organic, Fripp/Eno, Harold Budd come to mind, then after ~14 minutes the tone gets heavier with sustaining feedbacking electric guitar, grows very dense
3) chill distant feedbacks, sound collage of loveliness, very serene and hypnotic, beautiful
