Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-05-02 
Stripped down dark hollow songs that this band trademarked back when Reagan was still president. Everything they do sounds like it was recorded in an old empty church – like their debut/masterpiece The Trinity Sessions. This band was a progenitor of “alt.country”, mopey sadcore typified by David Lynch, Nick Cave and all things 4AD, with the crooning sentiments of Patsy Cline, Tom Waits. After all these years its nice to hear them return to their perfect roots, especially after riding the pop/AAA train to the bank throughout the 90’s. For fans of Red House Painters, Ana Calvi, kd lang. Excellent lyrics, finest recording/production attainable.

1) (5:21) dreamy ambient intro, kicks into pleasant midpaced dreamy pop, super cool subliminal effects
2) (4:06) slow swingy strummy dreamy
3) (2:39) AAA strummy mundane pop rhythm
4) (4:45) stripped down, complete junkies chillness
5) (3:40) quintessential chill dreamy junkies ballad, picks up and becomes epic “damaged from the start”
6) (4:23) Red House Painters guitar meets a “heart of Saturday night” Tom Waits, nice mandolin ballad
7) (4:01) strummy folky chill pretty
8) (6:00) mid paced strummy, dark pop
9) (4:13) epic stripped down ballad, lovely
10) FCCs (cool song though)
