Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-05-06
Vibe driven experimental jazz, with trumpet figuring large a la Miles Davis. From France, with spoken word and vocalizations, usually male but some female. Chill for the most part but upbeat at times.

1) Altogether tribal and chill vibes driven prog jazz music for trumpet
2) quiet spooky soundbed to spoken word (French)
3) cool very mathy with fuzzy guitar, almost rock element, dissonant
4) experimental, droney almost
5) mellow with vibes and female vocals, pretty if somber, very quiet fade out
6) upbeat vibe melodies with drums and trumpet
7) very chill, vibes in minor key, background samples/noise
8) starts with spoken word, disjunct drums and female vocals with long phrased melodies
9) strange feel, pounding simple beat with dissonant vibes/trumpet and weird swallowed vocs
10) mostly a spoken word sort of thing
11) very pleasant chill simple vibes with experimental trumpet notes, really cool, but watch last minute which is essentially dead air
