Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-10-30
Experimental noise, yet accessible because it combines a plethora of “real” music: proto-industrial, exotica, punk, prog, voice and vocal samples. Interesting compositions never lack rhythm, if even generated by looping distortions or bouncing synth tones, which make them far more “musical” and listenable to the average radio surfer than most noise. Great stuff from this band out of Providence, R.I. See also solo project by member Eric Copeland.

1) loopy layers, electro tones, voices, urgent rhythmic
2) fuzzy rhythmic, searing tones enter later
3) simple rhythm, vaguely shuffling rhumba
4) looped noise, almost difficult, moves into a collage of sorts
5) noisey, halting and schitzophrenic with a comical near exotica lounge flare
6) twisted tribal world tone to this one
7) fun and almost silly electro synth
8) brief, spacey melodies layer onto themselves
9) very sick layers, voice manipulation, dense, shifts serious gears with about 2 minutes left, into almost chill electro
10) a voice and synth driven rhythm builds, like Kraftwerk on acid, very quiet last 30 secs
