Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-04-21 
SF band that were quite popular in their day, progenitors of modern indie rock alongside contemporaries Pavement, Flaming Lips. Simple songs, jangly but tasteful, nice echo in places. Their best work veered into dreampop territory, IMHO (think Ride, Bethany Curve, MBV). Good songwriting (remember that?). Stalwart people in the SF music scene to this day. (note: I saw His Name Is Alive open for them at a packed Kennel Club in 1993, thats how popular they were).

1) (0:39) intro
2)* (3:24) midpaced pleasant
3) (4:02) bouncier
4) (2:37) more driving
5) (3:35) driving minor w KZSU I.d. at end
6) (0:34) interlude banter
7) (2:38) trademark shuffle beat, nice
8) (3:09) interlude, PSAs
9) (3:14) little more drivin sinister
10) (3:48) slower feel
11) (0:28) interlude
12) (4:02) nice KZSU intro, slower jangly minor chords
13) (0:11) interlude
14) FCC (how did I not edit this?!?!)
15)* (2:52) mid paced quintessential stuff "still get high"
16) (0:26) interlude
17)* (3:10) upbeat, strummy and rhythmic, nice phase/chorus
18) (0:48) interlude
19) (3:23) a low fi pre-recorded song that incorporates samples etc
20) (2:06) PSAs
21) (8:51) interview
22) (2:38) prerecorded song, super cool with samples, sorta a big bass heavy Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Killing Joke feel, different from what we heard, what a great band
