Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-12-13
“Compiled from more than 80 christmas albums, both American and foreign” this is a masterpiece of sample art, collage, and one of the only Christmas themed recordings deserving to remain on the planet unscathed. Fanstastic stuff, echoey and dreamy and droney in places. Some are very familiar, others aren’t. Preview a little to see which particular thing you are in the mood for a bent twisted and acid drenched version of. Track 16 seems to just be lovely droning washes of ambience, but no doubt it was taken from the final groove of Bing Crosby or something. For all fans of all things Kranky, Eno, atmospheric, narcotic. Bill C.
