Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-12-12
Solo double bass, experimental avante style. Four tracks, each written by either Elliot Sharp, JG Thirlwell, Miya Masoaka, or Annie Gosfield (see back of CD). Lots of dissonance, creative use of chords, bow exchange, pitz and arco. Songs long, haunting, range from urgent to low drone. For fans of Joelle Leandre, William Parker.

1) (9:36) lotsa glissandos, fast arco, super dissonant 2)* (13:17) long low bow exchange drones 3) (17:17) big chords, bowed, then lots of bow work, interesting, complex, haunting, bizarre chords 4)* (13:21) dissonant bow exchanges, droning, cool hammering with bow, percussiveness, excellent
