Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-05-25
Super groovy sample/beat rich electronic based weirdness. Great sense of rhythm and use of noise, environmental samples/found sounds. Waaaay too cool! Like a fine distillate of the best things Beck, Amon Tobin, Ninja Tune ever did. Tough to describe besides kick ass, sexy, toe tapping bliss. Almost all tracks have quiet or sample rich intro/outros so watch carefully. Whats most impressive, striking, is how every song evolves counter-intuitively, rhythmically and meter-wise. Beats come out of nowhere, glacial intros become 150 bpm monsters, but not in an overtly “ironic” manner. Just pure creativity and a fresh, new-ness that is so refreshing to my sometimes-fatigued, jaded ears. This is in my top ten of 2004, for sure, most likely, I think…

1) very quiet start, fade-in, kicks into a cool little melody and rhythm, “hit” quality
2) downtempo, chill and sexy
3) quiet “found sound” mostly
4) Beck’ish, I suppose, basic rock beat with lots of cool tones and beats and funky moments, watch quiet ending
5) quiet lead-in, more Devo electronic until @ 2 min a disjunct beat appears, chill
6) chill, spacey, references to space and amusement park rides
7) little kid field recording, other chill samples, brief collage
8) cool guitar w/ mildly exotic flare, fem vocs near Indian, downtempo
9) chill intro to chill dark downtempo
10) Tipsy’esque bossa nova nod, trippy then shifts completely to the coolest funky electro beat ever put to tape
11) computer voice over chill piano, simple bass heavy beat enters, mostly chill but builds nicely into way cool electro beats, watch quiet ending
12) hip hop beat feel turns Miami big beat dancehall and back
13) chill ambient start
14) slow, soulful gospel-like voc sample (Moby’esque, dare I say?), double time breakish beats enter and evolve to just plain kick ass stuff
15) slower marching feel evolves to sexy downtempo beat, goes double time at end
16) voice sample start, interesting downtempo beat w/ cello melody
