Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-11-12
Only the best sample art/music manipulation comes from our local friends from the Gigante Sound label (associated with former kzsu dj, The Bawd, if I might add). Another great release by this really intense incredible outfit, here they twist familiar 60’s pop sentiments into a folded spindled and manipulated vestige of the era. For fans of their Motown Meltdown, Tipsy, with regards to musical sample art, then People Like Us, Negativeland etc for sheer mastery of manipulative weirdness. Heavy sample manipulation but the moral of the story lies in good guitar playing, bass, drums, keys, noise, etc., and top notch mixing/production/mastering. If vocals appear they are only as additional instrumental weirdness. Check this out, as well as anything else on this local label that is doing The Bay Area justice, picking up the torch where Ralph Records left off.

(play1-2 together) 1) brief, slow minimal tribal plod, cool 60’s organ, low fi swirling instruments to it, fits in a bridge somehow, spooky but bright, a very nice intro to next track which it blends into
2) off time weirdness, “normal” music bent all over the place
3) super drugged out slowed down with loopy swirling big organ, weird shit that hits the fan just right
4) sick slowed mournful
5) big heavy tribal with ethereal clouds above, little vocals interludes that are buried
6) loopy vocs in intro, then it falls to a strange slow thing that feels like it will become dub at any second but thank god doesn’t
7) brief, fucked up noisey disasters
8) slowed weirdness, pink floyd? Man is this hitting the spot and I am about to OD on vicodin, yay!!
9) a slow organ centered sadness, sick chordal things fill the void with a really cool out-tro
10) weirdness that midway feels about to implode but fires the crew, brings back that disturbing dub feeling I mentioned, weird
11) man, this shit is sick, downtempo with the melody hook intact somehow, old school synth, nuff sed, just play (brief)
12) very chill, pretty, like Eno strapped to a the death chair at San Quentin giving Music For Airports as his last confession
13) brief, chill soundtrack to a meaningless dream
14) starts with more ambient mess, but about 2/3 way through a really cool nice beat arises, then it dies and the track/CD ends, fantastic!!!
