Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-10-20
One long track of improvised experimental, organic, composed with primarily acoustic instruments: pianos, bowed bass, percussion, but also some yummy subtle tasteful synths. Super cool. Reminds me a lot of Oren Ambarchi's work, Daniel Mench, Koji Asano. Worth it.

From Bandcamp: "Maintaining a teetering tension between suspension and collapse, Vertigo draws on a diverse palette of sounds created in the studio by Tony Buck (drums/percussion/guitar), Lloyd Swanton (bass) and Chris Abrahams (piano/keyboards), featuring everything from homemade instruments, extended instrumental techniques and marathon explorations of sonic textures."

(43:56) begins ambient, works its way into cacaphonies and other mind melting melding weirdness, lovely piano, rumbling bass bow exchanges, drones, great stuff worth every minute
