Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-04-24 
Viola/cello + guitar duo, avante mostly instrumental acoustic compositions that borrow from traditional Folk, avante, jazz and dissonance. Vocals appear here and there. Strange delay/pitch change on acoustic guitar ambushes and makes things interesting. Cool stuff.

1) (5:02) simple trad folk w/ moments of ripping guitar
2) (6:23) pretty, slower, somber, picks up in in duo style, gets heavy and dark and weird as it progresses
3) (3:35) vocals appear, looped plodding repeating lyrics, strings
4) (6:16) droning bows, strange guit effect here and there
5) (2:41) brighter feel
6) (5:34) dark plodding, cool electrification occurs late on
7) (5:43) vocals reappear, songlike, dissonant, dirgey, veritable guitar solo near end
8) (4:09) slow dirgey and simple, with crazed guitar arpeggios and manic nut strum and weird effect
9) (7:52) begins slowly, picks up
10) (6:08) ploddy strummy with vocs, noise/dissonance fest midway
