Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-04-10
Fans of Brian Eno and Harold Budd, Music From the Hearts of Space alike will like: Pretty, glacial, sparse but melodic and textured atmospheric music. Perfect to nod off to after the perfect shot of china white (or after a nice massage or a good book if you prefer). Set all phasers on stun. Maximize hypnotism. Great stuff from the fantastic Hidden Shoal label.

1) exceedingly quiet, slow start, minimalist piano borders on dead air and certainly brings to mind Eno’s “Music For Airports”, but evolves to a synth/string drone that’s melodic in a glacial way
2) slow piano, atmosphere density increases
3) samples appear in this one chill
4) waves of hornlike layers, eno’esque, turns to chill piano 2/3rds in
5) piano with melody, minimal and chill
6) organ and harpsichord sounding thing, watch 10 sec dead air at end
7) chill ambience then midway solo piano takes over
8) spoken thing over 3 note piano melody that grows denser with strings, manipulations
9) horns bring on a cinematic quality, soundtracky dram
10) minor viola/cello, dark drama with minimalist piano
11) strings, a shorter track and musical
12) dark plod sound, hollow and cool for sure NOTE: this track ends with 3:10 remaining, then there is almost a minute of dead air followed by dramatic strings
