Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-03-01
“Genre-benders” Cul de Sac scored the soundtrack to a “low budget feminist slasher film” and is this ever good. All instrumental, ostly psyche, tirppy and spacey. But with a predominant space-folk guitar a la the more twisted works of John Fahey (in fact, they collaborated w/ Fahey near the end of his life, fairly recently). This stuff runs the gamut, but its all really interesting, creative, mind expanding. All great.

1) tribal tom tom beat w/ great dark pensive sounds, instumental
2) Fahey’esque loopy guit
3) peaceful guitar w/ cool sounds
4) slow plodding walking percussion with trippy sounds, rumbling (or is that the train I’m on right now?), gets scarey
5) chill, sorrowful
6) tom tom/tymphany “solo” joined by Kalimba
7) beautiful strings accompany dreamy synth, brief
8) very brief
9) somber strings, sounds, brief
10) upbeat drums, simple jam, cool
11) solo folksy guit w/ slight strings, pretty
12) sounds exactly like Third Eye Foundation, downtempo, buried psyche, breakbeats
13) biref disturbing synth noise
14) droney, spacey, spooky, chill noise
15-17) spacey noise
18) melodic spacey synth
