Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2016-11-23 
Weird. Urgent punky fuzzy. Drums have an almost drum machine quality as all the songs sound very similar but not, with a heavy snare compression. Male vocs, fuzzy punky. Sometimes I hear Joy Division, PiL, Killing Joke in this, other times Swell Maps. But mostly it smacks of recent strange stuff by Ty Segal, Male Gaze, Useless Eaters. All songs killer, bizarre, despite rather monotoned. Hypnotic.

1)* (4:51) driving pogo post punk 2) (3:42) deep bass, killer fuzz. 3) (1:36) 2-4 beat in breaks, a punky urgency. 4) (2:33) joy division on pcp, fuzzy 5) (1:59) some diff breaks 6)* (3:01) slow fade in noise intro is different, some near twangy guitar 7) (3:04) darker sparser minor chords ring out. 8) (2:54) another driving mess. 9) (4:59) very different from others slower darker doomier, addition of sax is bizarre, sick
