Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-07-19
Lovely balms of chill psyche guitar noodles over drones and minimal drums, congas/tribal or casio/electronic. All instrumental, guitar centered. Great stuff that firmly falls into the new drone-psyche realm, with a nod back toward experimental John Fahey, Fripp/Eno drones.

1) 4:47) quiet droning guitar meanderings, lovely
2) (4:18) simple casio type drum beat a la Young Marble Giants or Cabaret Voltaire, congas and psyche guitar, vocalizations
3) (2:35) chill tones, feed backy sounds
4) (4:01) quiet fade-in, acoustic guitar, noodles with drone
5) (5:09) tribal drums, bell beat, psyche electric guitar noodlings over it
6) (6:10) chill casio beat, soaring and weaving guitar
7) (5:18) conga tribal beat again, chill drones and noodling guitar
8) (4:14) acoustic guitar noodles, Fahey’esque
9) (4:40) soaring drones and lead guitar
10) (5:52) very Fripp/Eno “Evening Star” in the sustain-drone, lovely
