Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-03-01
Collection of mostly brief meditations, like snippets of whiffs of last night’s dreams. All instrumental, electronic based (pretty organs, nice use of synths, simple durm machine beats), but some choice piano and twangy guitar thrown in too. Beautiful stuff, chill, narcotic, good hangover or rainy day music.

1) dreamy ambience, droney w/ buried voice sample
2) narcotic downtempo w/ melodic synth, childlike voc melodies, cool twangy guit
3) chill dark bass w/ cheery melodian melodies
4) piano and ride cymbal, dreamlike hypnotic
5) more poppy childlike lyric-free vocal melodies, nice twang
y guit and lush keys, organ
6) some buried radio-like voice samples under pretty piano
7) twangy guit up front, slow plod w/ strange organ, simple drum beat comes in for some playful normalcy
8) dreamlike downtempo drums, reverby droney wash with those cheery organ melodies again, this time very echoey
9) synth drum feel, sparser feel w/ simple piano notes, sounds build subtley
10) sweet dreamy melodic feel
