Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-05-13
Pop in tradition of low-fi/simple Neutral Milk Hotel, Orange Cake Mix school, but trippy and dreamy. Bowie and the Beatles/George Harrison and other 70’s purists come to mind (theres something ELO about this as well). Male vocs in a high register give it all a feminine, innocent feel. Well recorded guitars, drums, simple stuff with enough noise and tasteful treatments to keys and tape to keep it interesting. Trippy and dreamy elements make this work.

1) (2:44) pleasant pop: melodic harmonies, just enough feedback and noise and low fi elements to keep it up to date, blends into next
2) (3:26) kind of a bowie feel, George Harrison
3) (2:22) very sugary, simple
4) (3:40) sexy hip grind spoof with funny lyrics commenting on a punk scene
5) (3:30) trippy feel to an otherwise upbeat pop song
6) (2:47) lovely pop that ends with a looped tape of a mourning dove, cant beat that
7) (3:42) simple and Spartan
8) (2:56) this one has the most standard “sweet indie pop” feel to all, an element of REM if that’s what you want, cool noise at end
9) (3:44) folky sing songwriter acoustic guit/vocs, like an upbeat Mark Kozelik
10) (3:25) cool bendy synth found throughout CD gets in your face in this simple swaying mellow piece
