Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-04-15
Local experimental artist composes collages of disparate tones and samples, drones give way abruptly at times, unexpectedly. Nothing super harsh or abrasive, but the balmy blissful drones are usually short lived. Great stuff. Day of Noise stalwart.

1) (11:06) begins quietly with pump organ tones, slowly builds into a wash, quiets down midway then builds again pensive and urgent, very end has a sample “no danger of radiation leakage”
2) (12:38) dripping water, quiet dark industrial collage, organic
3) (6:54) a cacophony of electronic sounds build, whirring, clicking, ends with what sounds like a public mens room (water dripping sounds) blends into next
4) (7:02) quiet build into cacophony, sudden stop, then collage’like layers including a sample followed by a kick ass drone/balm, then urgent industrial toned thing, ends cold
5) (7:20) quiet start with treated bells, serene tones build to an industrial dance beat heavily submerged in noise
6) (5:56) very quiet, blippy electronic noises, moments of dead air, minimalism
7) (8:11) after a minute of quiet a beat appears, electro feel
8) (2:38) a loop of strange sounds, sounds like from a parade, world music, fades into a bed of collaged noise/samples
