Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-08-25
(Pronounced « moose », means mouse) Awesome. Chill, lush beautiful spaciness from this duo from Spain. I believe they are from/singing in one of many dialects spoken in that part of the world, maybe Basque, but its definitely not Spanish or Catalan. Really chill and dreamy stuff mostly, spacey acoustic guits and piano, some strings/synth. Drum kit appears occasionally to change the tone drastically. Very big sounding, but not blatant reverb, like recorded in a big castle. Unedited female vocs are subdued and breathy a lot of the time. Like laying in a meadow in the summer with butterflies about and the first lull of vicodin coming on.

1) waltzy spacey folky with breathy quiet vocs, acous guit, ambient synth, strings
2) simple piano + vocs
3) guit arpeggios + simple piano gets the treatment in the very end, instrumental
4) drum kit, almost a straight pop song, different from rest, still dreamy though
5) minimal piano intro, digital reverb noise treatments, turns experimental and ambient looping with dreamy synth sounds etc, instrumental
6) loud overdriven rock undercurrent w/ same dreamy vocal and guit elements
7) slow downtempo chill dream
8) whispered vocs + guit arpeggio minimalism
9) quiet piano arpeggio and glock + vocs, minor tone
10) chill brushed waltzy drum beat, whispered vocs, pretty swingy guit work, Quaalude music
