Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-07-23
Perfect melding of psyche garage with 80’s New Wave dance, in the spirit of Psychedelic Furs, Echo and TB, New Order/Joy Div, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. Sisters of Mercy also come to mind. Mostly big guitar bass drums but slathered in tripped out production and injections of sounds/noise. Joyously upbeat, irrepressible hipshakers, fun and strange altogether. Great shit fer sure.

1) (3:23) full on 80’s Psychedelic Furs, Echo and the Bunnymen, New order worship, “all I wanna do is get high with you”
2) (2:30) driving slightly psyched out rock, fuzzed vocs almost garage
3) (3:30) upbeat dancey, slightly New Wave feel with the tom tom beat
4) (2:22) heavily analog delayed vocs to start, then pounding drums with the echo/feedback, noise guitar, bordering on experimental noise madness
5) (3:02) full-on Psyche Furs nod, chorused guitars, vocal phrasing is maybe more Sisters of Mercy
6) (3:26) big ringing guitars, tom tom laid back head nodding rockin beat, Red Lorry YL come to mind
