Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-07-09
New Brooklyn hipster instrumental art/psyche/improv, elements of what Sun City Girls were on to 30 years ago out in the desert of Arizona. Tribal beats, disjunct dissonance in guitars, brass, female vocalizations, all with a decidedly SE Asian or even African feel in the repetitive guitar licks, rhythms. Sun City Girls meets Dengue Fever at an early 90’s Chicago post-rock party with Tortoise collecting money for beer. Despite the “psyche” label there are more free jams than blissouts.

1) (12:21) a looped repetitive posty/tribal feel, with some chanty fem vocalizations but mostly some wanky guitar, cool even if it kinda goes nowhere
2) (9:56) halting, bashing, free exploration, vocals play a big part
3) (6:42) begins with some pleasant droniness (heres some blissouts), after a few minutes comes the wankiness, but it never keeps a beat, remains more experimental, abstract, an intro for the next track
4) (10:41) hyper, pensive jam out, repetitive guitar, an organ solo, Billysburg kids must love this
