Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2016-03-01 
No wave post punky angular elements of post rock and even exp jazz. Guitar centered, drums when not pounding have some pots and pans, sax, stringed bass and Raincoats styled violin, and male vocs that are quite often melodic. Lots of dissonance. At times reminds me of Raincoats or Heavy Vegetable/Neutral Milk Hotel, but mostly something like Dog Faced Hermans or Flying Luttenbachers. Despite it all this could work in any set, from an indie pop set (track 8) to an experimental to a punk set.

1) (1:27) angular disjunct halting, back up signal sample intro
2)* (1:09) no wave urgent pounding mostly
3) (1:42) slow halting but with almost melodic vocals
4) (2:17) almost songlike, cohesive
5) (0:39) simple string bass and drums
6) (1:30) simple violin and halting janky drums like raincoats almost
7) (1:03) strange noises strung together then a simple poppy thing
8) (1:37) pretty guitar, brings to mind Heavy Vegetable, neutral milk hotel
9) (0:46) untreated train sounds, samples - weird cuz I'm reviewing this on a train
10) (1:10) treated waterfowl or swamp frog samples
11) (1:27) slow simple w violin and dissonant guit
12)* (2:22) plodding cool melodic and weird poppy
13) (1:30) more urgent but still plodding
14) (0:38) simple strings and percussion
15) (2:17) simple slow disjunct plodding but melodic and lo fi indie in that sense
16) (2:11) similar to previous
