Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-04-24
Think: Anita Lane, Nickcave , Giant Sand, Lisa Germano. Singer songwriter backed by brushed drums upright bass, loungy western tasty sexiness. Again DJ Bonebrake (original X drummer) adds percussion. Her cds only get better. She captures the SW so exquisitely despite being from LA. All songs AMAZING. Her vocal styling and melodies drip of desert sex.

1) slow sparse ¾ minor
2) driving, dirty upright bass killer, high speed voc phrasing
3) swarmy swampy, soundtrack to the southwest or a Jim Jarmusch film, life in the desert
4) western swingy, pretty, amazing! The best!
5) circus-like waits percussion and rhythmic feel
6) slow bluesy triplet feel, super cool, morose
7) driving triplet rocking crazy vocs, insane
8) slow waltz, acous guit+vocs, pretty
9) super melancholy acous ballad
10) vaudvillian feel, overdriven vocs in your face
11) waltzy ¾ happy dance w/ certain death lyrics
12) ode to LA’s Silverlake, beautiful slow dance w/ western tinge, a lullaby
13) swingy and mean and sexy
