Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-01-25 
Instrumental stoney psych space progenetors – theres probably a bronze statue buit of them (along with Acid Mothers) in the lobby of KFJC. This outfit defined a new generation that was born in a rain storm after eating the brown acid in a mud pit at Terrastock in 1996. Long meandering tracks of grungy fuzzed out drums, plodding zoned out drums. A couple have female “vocals” but even those feel like instrumentals. For fans of Neal Young at his grungiest, Bevis Frond, Carlton Melton.

1) (6:25) stoney head nodding deep fuzzed rock, gets right down to business, nice airy synth 2)* (9:42) more meandering, spacey, almost pretty, acid flashback without the acid, fades out sadly (maybe theres a 45 minute full version out there) but does end cold as it blends into next 3)* (4:24) comes out of previous, acoustic guitar strumming, lovely synth tones, emotional beauty 4) (2:47) simply electric guitar but quiet, almost clean, lots and lots of tremolo, fades out too 5) (16:57) epic and long, this has the woman in the band’s indecipherable non-melodic vocalizations that usually figure high in their releases, song doesn’t really change for its entirety, which makes it hypnotic, super stoney
