Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-05-27 
Two women on rich toned guitars, weaving simple melodies into a thick patchwork of altogether surfy-punky-dissonant-new wave dreaminess over a guy playing solid surfy-rock drums. Yes, one of the women lends her inimitable voice, that being formerly of Slant Six, Quixotic (Christina Billotte). Kathi Wilcox, formerly of Bikini Kill, plays counterpoint guitar in a manner like that of the fine bassist she was/is. All amazing stuff, pulled off even better live (if you get the chance). At least check out the Etta James cover (track 6).

1) bouncy surf beat, instrumental
2) upbeat pensive, driving
3) darker toned, tom tom beat
4) beautiful voice buds, w/ harmonies-backups, melodic guits harmonize in perfect dissonance
5) bouncy, in an early B-52s way
6) Etta James cover, brought the roof down at the Hemlock last November
7) midpaced, simple
8) urgent rocker
9) hard panned guitars, simple beautiful
10) rollicking 12 bar rocker
