Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-09-14
Great experimental, noise with enough creep/avante elements to keep it interesting. Captured live and in-studio over last 2 years, this Brooklyn duo sweeps the range of dynamics from chill creepy tones to full on guitar-feedback-drone. This is some pretty advanced stuff, in the league of Metalux, Merzbow, Sunn((O))), Eno, Daniel Menche, Wolf Eyes. Nightmare inducing bioinfectious sludge.

1) chill avante sparse noise, bowed cymbals and sparse feedback
2) super chill, too chill, avoid
3) FCC in intro addressing audience, intense noise a la Wolf Eyes etc
4) super chill and sparse but becoming a lovely drone around 10 minutes with other random shots
5) very brief treated samples
6) killer dense sustained guitar-feedback/noise layers with ritualistic strum and possessed vocs
7) chill percussive bell tones over creepy low drone, builds somehow
8) FCC sound collage of obvious hidden mic ambushing of art-snob dork
