Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-12-23 
French artist who has collaborated with the likes of Lou Barlow and Daniel Johnston plays old school synth music, accessible danceable beats, but more along the lines of Kraftwerk or Tomita than anything contemporary. Very Moog, very organic. Tracks are mostly chill, nothing techno/house or intense 200 bpm. Cool stuff.

1) long (20 min) begins slow and dark, but turns electrobeat Kraftwerky, old school Moog, after ~15 minutes the beats subside and the last 5 minutes is an ambient swirl of Moog
2) mellow groove, chill beat with lots of synth tones
3) chill, sparse with simple melody and “drum machine” beat, fake conga style
4) “treated bagpipes”? pensive minor keyed electronic drones over pounding minimal beat that dissipates with ~2 min remaining and the track drones off into the void
5) looped saxophone tones with swirling trippy electronics, hypnotic and spacey
