Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-01-13 
Living room sample- art, noise, electro-noise, noise-rock from the sounds of it. Four track cassette? Incorporation of treated casio type beats, rudimentary synth and electronics and lots of found-sound, hidden mic, hand-held tape recorder looped samples. Most pieces go through lots of shifts and changes, some are jarring and some parts are difficult, but not outright painful (e.g. Jiliat). Cool stuff.

1) (6:31) looped sample-noise, then noisey treated casio beat appears and more looped samples, 2 min in it changes to a strange dark mid paced industrial feel, a few minutes later it slows and incorporates old video game sounds, goes out quiet and dark
2) (7:03) quiet dark plod to start, evolves to some seriously challenging looped noise, disturbing and cool
3) (7:20) starts off with “ice cream” call out sample, then space weird electronoise and more noise collage
4) (2:39) “hidden microphone” conversation sample under plucking and random sounds, noise rock bursts
5) (5:46) meandering noise rock, midway fades out and an upbeat casio noise rock ditty materializes
6) (3:29) off key silly singing (is this Brick?) then even sillier casiotone rhythms and voice pitch change helium sniffing
7) (5:34) a smooth, smarmy casio rhythm and looped word sample leads to a dark and spacey spooky feel, gets noisey and urgent eventually into the end
8) (2:44) pure noise pretty much, slightly rhythmic
9) (3:48) simple low fi living room guitar, a silly joke then some screamy mimi noise onslaught
10) (7:59) mashup of strange bouncy rhythms and creepy noise
11) (3:11) harsh noise to start, becomes a balm, midway lots of fun with a distorted microphone, layering and screaming
12) (4:30) simple silly casio with off key melodies, mellows after 1min, midway a big beat appears, more collage with guitar
13) (7:41) more synth collage
