Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-04-23 
Amy Winehouse meets the Melvins (and they all OD together). Strange rock, glammy and all mixed up, impossible to pigeonhole. Elements of electro are swamped by big fuzzy rock, soulful vocs get buried by effects, samples fly in and out of the blue. Seemingly predictable and unexpected simultaneously. Even manages to mash in Bollywood at one point. Fans of Pepe Deluxe, Mike Patton/Ipecac Records.

1) (2:51) slick glammy “metal” alternative?, pretty cool with samples, catchy
2) (2:04) Motown rhythm guitar, electro quirkiness, panned samples in the middle
3) (3:15) 60’s shuffle rock flare, phase shifted vocs give it a tinge of pyschedelia
4) (3:23) simple rock feel, 4 chord progression
5) (3:13) a mellow waltzing almost cute little toy pop song (?!?)
6) (2:48) wth? Bollywood highjacking, sampling
7) (2:00) cool sexy smarmy spy music, scratching electro Amon Tobin style
8) (3:26) bouncy 60’s psyche feel, strange
9) (2:47) annoying vocs, epic pop though
10) (2:31) slow electronic tones with rain sounds, locked groove percussion
11) (2:21) vocal centric, minimal music
12) (2:55) Zep/GnR feel in vocs and pseudo metal feel, some might like
