Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-01-03
Creative if old school noise and ambient tape treatments. Fans of Moog based space music, tape cut ups of field recordings a la Throbbing Gristle and cassette manipulations a la Esplendor Geometrico take note. Nothing brutal or harsh, in fact blissful and dreamy if anything.

1) near ambient spacey trippy synths, lilting
2) looped voice samples, about God, over an ambient dreamscape
3) pensive higher pitched synth wails, old school moog feel
4) dark ambience, a vague rumbling drone about it, like a Sonic Youth locked groove
5) pitch changed bent vocal samples looped fucked up
6) minimal frequency modulated tones
7) treated sample by Utah Phillips (?), brief
8) hypnotic synth melody, creepy tones edging in, quite nice
9) old school percussive treatments a la Esplendor Geometrico using old boss delay
10) treated voices, looped over chill synths, devolves into chill darkness
11) brief strange synth
12) ambient and dreamy
