Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-06-12 
Hammer dulcimer based avante orchestra. Compositions that are hypnotic in places and composed/songlike in others. Primarily instrumental, the first longer track can be tastefully edited during obvious major shifts, parts. Really cool stuff bordering on experimental.

1) (33:29) several songs in one: repetitive dulcimer, after ~3 min strings join in earnest in a melodic manner, very intense, a~10 min it returns to minimalism of beginning (obvious place to pot down), then ~13 min in a song-like tone takes over, devolves to serious minimalism, picks up again til end
2) (7:23) slightly dissonant, w/ flute, minimal grows intense toward end
3) (18:12) vocals appear, singing scale melodies, very exotic flare throughout
