Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-12-19
This stuff veers from Big Star/Tom Petty guitar indie pop rock to Loop/Wooden Shijps psych drenched jams so fast it gives me whiplash, which is a great thing. Super cool stuff, mostly instrumental, guitar driven but uses lots of great layered effects, tasteful. Moments of Killing Joke chorused searing guitar here and there. And its no wonder as Poss is a rock veteran: He founded the Band of Susans in 1986 after having worked with Rhys Chatham. Afterward he collaborated with members of Wire, Phil Niblock, and others. He’s been dubbed a “guitar genius”.

1) (3:24) basic pop rock a la Big Star, three chords and melodies 2) (5:08) basic simple rock, very Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, instrumental 3)* (4:36) strings appear, layers of them looping, minor toned and hypnotic, midway a somewhat psych flavored dreamy rock appears 4) (3:44) EPIC psych drenched jam with cool subtle sexy bass 5) (3:45) cool guitar riff and tribal drums, vocals repeating “I’ve got a secret list”, cool 6)* (4:21) chill looping ethereal guitar arpeggios, dreamy 7) (8:49) quiet ambient solo chill electric guitar 8)* (3:55) cool noise guitar wash 9) (5:50) basic strumming rock 10) (3:47) cool looping guitars and tones
