Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-05-25
One man post-rock’ish, experimental, ambient project. Very post-rock mostly, looping guitars, big snare drum beats. But lots of Evening Star era Fripp ambience as well, meaning looping pretty ethereal washes of guitar and space. Interesting, chill for the most part. Fans of Do Make Say Think, Mogwai pay attention.

1) slow space rock build-up a la Do Make Say Think or Mogwai
2) upbeat post-rock, building around a geeky riff, layers loop and get dense
3) dark chill ambient noise loops
4) chill de-tuned guitar dissonance for 4 minutds when heavy rock explodes w/ drums and heavy guitar layers, power chords, segues out, returns to a trippy Frippy riffy guitar loop amidst quiet ambience and Fripp-like sustained notes
5) simple guitar riff and some sparse percussion
6) sparse mellow Fripp, Evening Star type guitar, loopy
7) noisey low-fi looping drums w/ spaciness
8) looping guitars, melody, some vocs, post rockish indie rock song-like
9) chill piano toned ambience
