Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-11-26 
Sassy bratty new wavey punky sci fi electroclashy. Sneering familiar female vocs almost X Ray Specs, early Siouxsie in tone. Riot Grrl element in its brashness. New wave organ, driving bass and drums. But heavily treated guitar really makes this interesting: psycho use of delays, high resonance flange, etc gives it a sci-fi feel when it's not full on early Sonic Youth dissonant. Wondering if the Thee Oh See's gratuitous use of echoey effects and weirdness in otherwise straightforward garage/punk is influencing all these bands of late. Play also with Hookworms, Lorelle, Dhaga Bloom, Lost Sounds, Beelzebub Youth. Great stuff, all tracks brief, play any.

1*) (2:37) upbeat bouncy new wave punky with cool dissonant sonic youth guitar
2) (1:46) driving punky
3)* (3:55) mid-up paced, slows tribal at end allowing freaky guitar to come thru
4) (2:46) bass driven, mid rocker
5) (0:49) super brief like this totally punky blast should be
6) (2:20) straightforward rocker
7) (2:03) little more halting, new wavey
8) (1:40) driving again new wavey
9) (3:40) bass starts this off, another hard driving piece
10)* (2:56) slower slightly tribal beat, cool vocal efx etc
11)* (2:07) nice mid paced tom tom beat
