Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-02-18 
Very light, singer songwriter male from Sweden playing very lightly plucked guitar, singing soft easy listening melodies. Nice stuff, so tame. Like Nick Drake, minimal emotive, relying on pure melody and genuine simple guitar playing, but unlike Drake as its stripped of any foreboding, angst. More like Raffi on shrooms. Or Cat Stevens at a Catholic Church service. Mostly just solo guitar but overdubs, layers appear. Percussion is limited to simple hand claps or wood blocks. Simple pretty stuff. FCCs? You kidding?

1)* (5:19) simple arpeggios, melody, pretty
2) (5:35) upbeat, bassy with very light percussio
3) (3:26) slight funk to it, hand clap rhythm
4) (3:21) very nice, quiet with bass flute, almost nursery rhyme quality
5) (4:54) joyful with handclaps, so cheery, up with people
6)* (3:11) slower, simpler, agricultural metaphors
7) (6:28) slight upbeat funky, shifts to upbeat rhythm midway
8)* (3:45) drop tuned, simple guitar, no words, minimal, childlike whistling
9)* (3:45) nice pleasant tuning feel in vocs
10) (2:41) finger picking cafe style confessional
