Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-11-23
Ultra stripped down, chill almost ambient glitch/blip hop, downtempo. Like trip hop glitch on a Qualuude overdose, just sublime and chill and serene as can be. Tracks blend into one another, almost as if they had been tracked in halves instead of at the end of each piece, so you might be better off putting this on continuous and using the faders. Really pretty stuff.

1) extremely chill and sublime, glitchy blippy trippy hoppy
2) faster more urgent blippy beats, looping string tones, narcotic chill, evolves to denser chill synth glitch as means to lead into next track 3) more upbeat melodic, still chill but the beats layer and tones interweave
4) quite serene, like a kalimba music box in a dream when a low bass loop and glitchy blippy undercurrent awakes this, super chill fade out
5) skippy trip hop blippy beat, beat feels stronger here
6) stripped down chill breakbeats and glitch
7) suuuper chill intro, pretty ambience and slow sparse beats, kind of an intro to next
8) stronger feel, a rhythm, if not skippy and total glitch
9) exceedingly chill intro, almost 20 seconds of subsonic silence, then a cool blippy swallowed tone appears and bounces around the inside of your head, watery, again leads into or is a part of next track
10) watery bouncy continuation of previous, then turns to next track, chill slow and serene
11) blip beats appear, looped sampled keys
12) continuation, watch dead air in middle due to strange track writing I mentioned above, then an almost guitar feel piece, strange and weird, minor, vinyl crackling samples
13) downtempo, some high pitched noises, but a distinct organic tone with near guitar, still so narcotic and trippy
14) breakbeat feel ratchets up a notch, turns glitchy and trippy
