Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-08-15
Minneapolis band uses synths and rotting beats, washes of sounds, noise and tones, buried distorted pitch changed vocals (if any) to create sound collages that bury super cool beats. When such a beat escapes and they create a Krautrock epic jam worthy of Neu and Can, or super driving noise electro with jungle tones, or bent downtempo electro mantras. Killer stuff, incorporating old school noise and electroclash with new school noise rock and krautrock, jungle. Band has collaborated with the likes of Har Mar Superstar, et al. Excellent very advanced stuff.

1) (2:23) slow noise organ, with noises, like the infamous church in hell, ends cold 2)** (10:21) super cool downtempo’ish bendy synth minimal melody, casio drum beat, some creepy distorted vocals appear, then the whole thing pulses hypnotic for a few minutes, then with 2 minutes remaining a KILLER krautrock type jam picks up the beat, epic! 3) (1:05) minimal synth tones, bursts, interlude of sorts 4)* (4:27) starts quiet with white noise, kicks into super driving noise electro with jungle tones. 5) (3:06) big epic synth tones, slathered in noise, bent downtempo beat 6)* (7:24) quiet creepy noise synths, vocs, foreboding until ~3 min a super cool beat appears and keeps it dark and urgent, grows chill, then another super chill sexy appears if only briefly at end, which is cold
