Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-07-31
Local SF band: Dissonant duel guitar driven dark rock that has elements of post-rock (complex meters, fancy tunings and chords, precisely played drums) that serves as a soundbed to spoken word poems, themes of darkness, dysfunction. This recipe is tough to pull off well without relying on humor (see: Anne Magnusun, King Missile). But these guys have mastered it in their bumpy 15 year existence (losing a phenomenal drummer to mental illness along the way). Duel guitars and drums have subtle synth embellishments here, there. This band has a long-storied resume that includes Swans, Nice Strong Arm (other 80’s Homestead bands), Toiling Midgets, Tarnation, Shit and Shine. I will argue that Joe Goldring and Kevin Thompson are two of the greatest living guitarists today. See also Don Caballero, early Sonic Youth/Glen Branca, Joe Gore, Marc Ribot, Nels Cline. Pete’s crooning story telling of one Nick Cave also springs to mind. Like a Dashiell Hammet tale. Note: 50% all proceeds of sales of this record go to Planned Parenthood.

1) (2:46) FCC 2)* (4:06) cool sultry beat 3) (3:03) mid slow 4)* (4:31) (FCC quick “pissed on” - safe harbor only) drivin denser rockin chiming. 5)* (4:10) beautiful chill 6) (2:17) faster mathy 7) (3:58) pretty, a fucked up waltz feel, chiming, beautiful, grows powerful and epic in the end, SY comes to mind 8) (2:48) dense and lush, intense 9)* (11:17) cool chill atmosphere to start, builds to intensity then returns to dark atmosphere drone noise
