Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-10-16 
Perfect resurrection of the joy of low fi recording techniques, Indie rock the way it was originally meant to be: simple rock, beats, cool guitar, vocals, loaded with excellent effects and primitive multitracking: Simple, genuine, not slick. Everything is here, the guitar, the melody, the beats, the cool sounds. We don’t need a cool hat, a beard, a violinist, a Coachella. Great stuff. Think: early Neutral Milk Hotel, God Is My Copilot, Luxurious Bags, Daniel Johnston, Beck.

1)* (3:04) upbeat weird low fi pop, about a grandma wrapping her car around a tree, wait what? Cool 2)* (2:12) upbeat driving feel, as above strange low fi cool sounds permeate, good melodies in a pop sense, epic really 3) (2:21) super cool groovy beat in a weird way 4)* (2:02) great rhythm, subtle vocal effects, perfect pop in my book (though my book fell in Ken Kesey’s toilet) 5) (1:31) upbeat and strummy and weird like the Beatles had they taken twice the acid they actually had 6) (1:17) fun stuff, upbeat, great weird sounds, random, like the Dead if they actually had good acid instead of that lame fresh Owsley stuff 7) (2:05) subtle understated beat and rhythm, nice 8) (2:48) noisey weird, still upbeat pop 9)* (2:09) upbeat weird driving pop 10) (1:43) funny simple “let me take you out to my grandpa’s house” 11) FCC (I think) 12)* (2:00) Beatles’y feel somehow, maybe the harmonies and the upbeat rhythmic feel, cool weird sonic distortion and twisted blasts appear midway 13) (2:11) simple pop feel, bendy weird 14) (2:00) simple pop 15) (2:19) more strange pop 16) (2:17) fun feeling, guitar is playful as is the overall tone, cute pop feel
