Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-03-15
Harsh analog synth noise. Extreme pulse and sawtooth waves, modulated and heavy. Screamed “vocals”join. Organic to max, likely recorded live through very loud amps. For fans of Controlled Bleeding, Merzbow, Death Squad, Massonna, other Japanoise, getting evicted, divorced, disowned, disembowled. Could fit in with Endon and Augers too. I think this guy is local though the internet is not of much use for personal info (btw don’t google the band name without qualifying with “band”. Or rather, do, especially if you like this stuff). This title is a few years old but fine for our rotation in its obscurity and localness.

1) (5:22) pulsing harsh silly 2)* (8:06) excellent work, harsh vocals in mix (maybe a barely decipherable “shit”?) epic. 3) (3:57) dense harsh noise w screamed vocs 4) (6:17) sax tones in w low harsh drones, chaotic 5) (3:43) swirling analog synths, crazy 6) (3:43) ultra feedback dist screamed vocs 7)* (5:17) power electronics, slow electro w vocs 8)* (5:27) more of a chill synth feel w noise 9) (5:41) more brutality....10-14) I lost steam on the track by track description as they are all sonic harshouts, no FCCs detected
