Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-11-10
Old school (active since the 70's) loop experimentalist uses primarily analogsequenced synths in this release (as opposed to his Fripp'esque trademark guitar). The first six tracks are all synth, relatively brief and come across as interludes or idea fragments, especially since they are often hard panned lending an unmixed quality. Later songs grow longer with the last a 30 minute full band jam epic hypnotic psyche masterpiece. Album, track titles, all reference Frank Herbert's Dune.

1) (2:22) fades in looping minimal beat with slow swirl analog synth
2) (2:16) slow fragment of looping synth
3) (1:37) a faster fragment of synths
4) (1:44) hard panned urgent
5) (1:36) mid. 6) (2:06) some guitar appears in left channel 7) (4:36) longer length allows a more hypnotic effect to synth loops
8)* (6:13) begins w slow Casio beat fades in slow sequenced bass synth, nice
9)* (30:22) slow synths begin eventually evolving into a mid paced full band jam with dubbed hard panned soaring guitar leads/melodies, psyche masterpiece material
