Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-02-15
Avante experimental, not so much noise as improv out-there jazz and art school samples, voice overs. "Arty" for sure, clarinets, guitar, male/female abstract singing here and there, strange stuff for sure, all pretty chill, nothing harsh or difficult.

1) clarinet centered, brief, avante jazz feel
2) street sample of people saying typical stuff about gov. schwarzanazi, california secession "LA can go to hell"
3) FCCs
4) abstract minimal sample and sound collage
5) chill drony noise with street samples, voice/sounds, "i trust in jesus"
6) slowed electro beat, chill voice "enron and exxon...jesus" and minimal guitar
7) street sample "what do you think about noise?"
8) droney distorto noise
9) noodly noise guitar w/ chill noise 10) voice "art is serious..."
11) womans voice/singing over noodly avante noise
12) chill noise, male voice
13) chill creepy sci fi noise, electro w/ cymbal scraping
14) "who killed desere brown" over free jazz drum stylings and guitar/noise
15) chill brief
16) improv minimal feel
17) quiet start, builds slowly, chill, sax
18) chill guitarwork
19) free jazz
