Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-07-23 
John Dwyer's (castle face records, thee oh sees) solo project. Synth based but drums and bass. Little if any of his trademark Oh Sees guitar. But the vocals are put through some kind of Brian Eno filter as is all this, big nods to mid 70's art rock. Of course this is awesome; all tracks great.

1)* (0:40) brief melodic intro blends into next
2)* (3:10) downtempo almost quirky Another Green World Eno'esque
3)* (2:59) cool sexy heavy beat cool synths slow phrased vocs
4) (3:14) strange new wave meets thee oh sees feel
5) (3:06) Eno feel in vocals even stronger, dissonant heavy synths subtle tribal drums
6) (3:20) slower disjunct beat dissonant synth
7)* (4:12) upbeat bouncy fun stuff he's great at
8) (0:29) brief synth excerpt, obvious Eno love
9)* (3:05) oh boy is this convoluted beat and minimalism just perfect!
10) (3:27) mid up near tribal somehow?
11)* (2:55) upbeat noisier rockin flare
12) (0:21) another green world type snippet, outro of previous
13) (3:07) yet another cool convoluted synth with simple fun beat
14)* (4:24) simple Casio drum machine feel rock (real drums in there though) heavy treated vocs
