Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-04-04 
Cassette tape collection of cool weird bands from the Denver Boulder
area. Very 80-90's, "low fi", noise all the way to the Twee Pop
(remember?). Varied, a few tracks are lovely shoe gazey atmospheric
psych. Totally College Radio fare, retro in a sense going back to the
feel of Chris Knox, Guided By Voices, back when the Fostex and Tascam
4-track cassette ruled the world of creative weirdoes. Lift the hood
on this one for a peek.

1)* (2:36) post punky dissonance off kilter female vocs, Slits,
Kleenex 2)* (3:10) low fi living room pop ends w noise onslaught. 3)
(2:18) twee pop! Baa baa bops and all, sorta 4) (2:00) almost new
king crimsony prog. 5) (3:45) upbeat low fi pop rock 6) (2:32) upbeat
male vocs near twee. 7) (1:23) total low fi solo guit and vocs. 8)*
(3:10) dream poppy shoe gazey fem vocs 9) (3:13) low fi w Casio
simple drum and acoustic guitars, buried vocs 10) (2:36) low fi full
band indie pop, some good noise edited in 11) FCC. 12)* (1:42)
almost a talking heads silliness to this, bent vocs 13) (1:33) auto
tune and "soulful" 14)* (1:58) garagey 60's pop flare 15)* (2:37)
cute jangle girl pop reminds me of Seapony 16)* (3:46) shoe gazey
reminds me of old American Analog Set or something 17) (1:25)
excellent simple cute kid pop 18) (4:27) clean cool weird dissonant
pop. 19) (1:23) brief but great noise, low fi tape stuff, love it,
play with next 20)* (5:45) very chill guitar + girl vocs, dreamy
