Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-12-17
Not sure when he dropped the Mazzicane but he used to be Loren Mazzicane Connors in the 90’s, back when he was one of very few artists unleashing this brand of trippy solo dissonant guitar minimalism to audiences of ten (these days it plays to a larger audience). John Fahey is usually mentioned with Connors. I would describe him as Eno had he only had an electric guitar. Barn Owl et al no doubt list him as a huge influence. Earth probably appreciated him as well. Suffice to say: here is recent work by The Master. Long spacey guitar studies in appreciation, being present. Produced by master of heavy drone, James Plotkin (OLD, Khanatke).

1) (10:24) quiet fade in, very sparse notes, minimalism atmospheric bliss
2) (1:56) brief, more minimalisim
3) (10:46) this has some distant industrial pounding sounds, is creepy
4) (6:42) some trippy effects using harmonics make this one denser, less minimal and more radio friendly, interesting
5) (4:34) more minimalism, pretty somehow, shimmering
