Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-07-19
From Sweden, these guys distill classic American garage rock: Very Detroit, Stooges or something, relying on good tube guitar overdrive than blasts of fuzz to get the point across, with sneering Iggy adolescent vocals that smack of the era. Cool subtle keys and synth. For fans of the MC5, Dolls, Iggy, Ramones, and all great garage, early “punk”.

1)* (1:34) basic 12 bar rock with groovy swirly synth tone 2) (2:14) driving straight ahead rock 3)* (4:34) spooky feel, minor, with dominant simple bass line, not driving, sparse with vocal Boss DM2 delay effects, realizing this reminds me of Suicide or something, like if “frankie” had a guitar bass drums outfit 4) (3:40) picks up, driving rock “Friday night and I’m all alone again” 5) (4:01) ballady, forelorn lovesick 6)* (4:46) full on Stooges feel, slow rock with cool noise leads and echo effect on vocs 7)* (6:53) slower, with simple bassline and distortion feedback, vibes appear, long droney and stoney 8)* (1:55) back to basics: driving simple rock, punky, with killer distorted keys, kinda krautrock 9) (2:04) Ramones feel in the vocals/lyrics, simple rock 10) (2:57) 12 bar blues rock feel, epic classic tone, especially when piano appears 11) (3:02) slower chordy, ballady 12)* (4:48) fuzzier and darker
