Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2016-10-12
Treated guitar and noise, krautrock moments from these storied individuals teaming up for what you'd expect: powerful experimental layered compositions pushing the limits of guitar and electronics, tape treatments, and a downtown free jazz flavor. All instrumental except first track. Killer.

1)* (5:05) sinister fuzzy searing pensive beat bendy notes desperate vocs 2) (6:33) cool disjunct noise pulsing awesome. 3)* (9:16) starts noisey but quickly turns to a killer kraut rock infused jam, nice 4) (4:55) noisey collage 5) (4:59) starts very quiet with flute tones builds slowly then explodes midway into a near free jazz improv that gels 6) (4:17) brass joins the fray, improv feel, heavily layered and atmospheric somehow.
