Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-11-14 
Killer noise infused power rock, punk. Live Skull, Killdozer, Tragic Mulatto, Ape Has Killed Ape, early Birthday Party (?) and Touch and Go greats of yesteryear come to mind. Fuzzed desperate male vocs, overdriven guitars and bass, tribal pounding drums, a strange sax appears on a couple occasions. Includes luminaries such as Mike Watt, Weasel Walter, and members of Peru Ubu (wow, theres some serious name dropping). Kzsu faves keep cranking this out, getting better and better. CD gets more and more interesting as it progresses.

1) (4:01) tribal Tom Tom beat with desperate vocs 2)* (2:44) still tribal but more noise layered 3) (3:18) dark ballady almost like Live Skull. 4) (3:08) mellower dark rock 5)* (0:40) brief mean driving chaotic 6) (3:10) an almost western twang to this if you squint 7) * (3:24) great demented pop to this. 8) (3:04) weird slide guitar, Tragic Mulatto comes to mind 9)* (2:14) cool interesting wall of power pop to this, Television? 10) (3:22) chill, mellower rock 11) (3:33) total tribal w searing fuzz bass in front 12) (2:36) slide dobro type minimalism, w subtle noise, strange outlier 13) (1:58) huge wall of sound, bombastic bass. 14)* (2:44) head bobbing that starts stops, cool 15) (2:40) accessible indie rock flavor, could be a cover as it has an early 90's familiar tone 16) (4:19) slower mindful plod 17)* (2:30) groovy beat, wah wah guitar, saxophone figures high, somehow reminds me of Phoenix 1983, sun city meat puppets 18) (2:05) cool rockin. 19) (1:27) upbeat rockin, great guitar lead 20) (2:16) kinda upbeat bouncy, for a split second early Cure. 21)* (6:29) awesome fuckedup dirge. 22) (0:36) upbeat brief Minutemen'esque 23) (5:48) 9th chords and dissonant jangle add an element of post punk to this slower ballady piece.
