Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-01-02
Noise. But interesting. Varied. Not just a big harsh wall, not just reams of repetitive collage. Pieces evolve and have personality. Don’t misunderstand me though, lots of loud and painful elements. But all well done. Track 2 is long, but epic and beautiful.

1) tooth drill sound (almost), sparse blips give way to some fairly difficult collage, noise, high pitched white variety, recorded live
2) very chill low tones start as this builds into layered looping drony noisey tones, long but very worth it
3) skippy and blippy’ish, painful high freqs, noisey
4) first 2:30 is silence (or very very quiet), then looping alarm-like tone turns into distorto wall
5) high frequency quiet drone to start, then creepy droney shimmering spaciness, then a discordant miasma, the soundtrack to a suicidal anxiety breakdown, ends on a high note, a very high sustained freq.
