Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-10-20 
This band conjures up 4AD with beautiful guitar/piano based waltzy ballads, sad female vox, dissonant weird and experimental at times. This fits in with Nick Cave, Tarnation, Tindersticks territory. Very nice.
Note especially tracks 1,3, 4

1) Pretty, airy, waltz, “A” part turns to loud rock epic sounding “B” part with an early Breeders feel.
2) Piano based evil circus waltz, Nick Cave.
3) This is a fantastic cover of Gershwin’s “the man I love”, piano based death march minor feeling at first evolves into major lightness, but sad all the way.
4) Piano/vocal duet.
Traditional early 20th century sounding sad piano with desperate distant voice, lyrics.
5) Bowed bass, accordion, slow dirgey hypnotic, with softly spoken words/poetry, spooky, sad.
6) Piano solo song.
Pretty, minor keyed, 2 minute ending to great EP
