Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-11-16 
Local new psyche. 4th album (?) as their sound matures into their own. Gone are the blatant nods to Neu, Krautrock, replaced with their unique distinct bubbly dancy driving fuzzy woozy sound. Stripped down vocs buried in subtle echo. Each song has a tasty guitar lead, a fun jam. See also side project Moon Duo, other locals Lumerians, and the new Gnod. Choose any.

1) (5:18) bright, upbeat
2) (5:15) swingy beat, fun
3) (3:54) driving, Neu’ish
4) (5:26) slower, more of a mid paced ballad feel
5) (5:10) upbeat, bouncy
6) (5:24) triplety driving, swirling
7) (6:09) more along their old style – dark fuzzy maraca sultry rhythmic
8) (5:19) a strummy almost cutesy feel, different, melodic, good near-indie pop
