Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-07-18 
Indie pop with low-fi trashy moments, fans of Beck, Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Neutral Milk Hotel take note. Some tracks are polished, others have fuzzy low-fi vocals and sloppy drums. Mixed bag, good stuff. Sometimes the vocs remind me of a Daniel Johnston sufficiently medicated.

1) upbeat indie pop with low fi simple drums, melodic
2) really pleasant pop, Beck/Pavement
3) stop go, trashier, girl vocs in there
4) upbeat pop that smacks heavily of Yo La Tengo
5) funky pop rhythm, “sweet” melodic vocals and feel
6) very quiet long intro to dreamy drumless pop
7) simple casio rhumba beat, dreamy feel
8) simple beat, low bass
9) chill simple pop, low bass, slowly phrased melodic “fragile” vocs
10) Best song: cool pop with killer drum motif/theme/break that makes the whole song, along with the killer twang guitar and catchy as fuck melody
11) ¾ waltz beat, slower more simple sing/songwtr
12) driving w/ fuzzy guitars, tad more of an edge
