Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-05-18
German/Italian man/woman duo making “metal, Avantgarde, Industrial, Punk, Love” influenced music. Hard to pin this down but it scratches just about every itch Your Imaginary Friend has on his body or in his brain these days (and listen up kids, when you get to be my age, the itching only gets worse). Dirge, punk, noise, art, dissonance, melody. Female vocals, completely screwed up (is that Italian? Doesn’t matter now really does it). Like Daisy Chainsaw on downers, or PJ Harvey gasping her dying breath, the Cows prodded, the Swans caged and force fed as future pâté.

1) nasty driving rock with strange indecipherable vocals, driving pounding meld of metal and punk and noise
2) 2/4 driving hardcore punk feel, brief
3) almost a swingy beat, but just all fucked up and wrong, never takes off, just kinda screws your head to the wall with your hips still swaying
4) holy shit: a beautiful pounding driving tribal thing with vocals feeling like they are being screamed into a pillow, with a slow breakdown
5) bizarre drum centered, with strings bowed, cool as shit
6) noise bass bending melody with head nodding simple rock beat
7) a lovely slow drum beat with her sexy desperate messed up vocals and a drunken harmonica
8) a slow dirge with demonic vocals, after ~7 minutes it breaks down into a minimal noise with low end bed, sparse sound sources (piano, strings, percussion) embellishing,
then after ~ 13 min (7 min remaining) the band comes crashing back in with that fucked up woman wailing… if there is any hope for humanity, the human race, it lies within the mere fact that this was performed, recorded, printed, and made available to everyone in the world
