Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-10-27 
Local indie pop, Berkeley scenesters that arguably have perfected infectious male-female intertwined vocal harmonies, melodies. Edgy simple sugary power pop with lo-fi elements yet slick delivery, these guys tear a page from the book that Yo La Tengo and Heavy Vegetable wrote, scribbling Hello Kitty doodles all over it. This is their 3rd release in 6 or 7 years and it appears they’ve grown fond of their piano/synths, moving them into the position that lovely fuzzy guitars used to hold. The fuzzy guitars still appear, and I must confess I like them best as this band excels when they simply pop-rock out. Regardless, the vocal tapestries on this are not to be missed. Too bad their first release walked out of the station as it’s a must-listen (run out and find it).

1) upbeat casio beat and electro feel
2) simple bass heavy, mellower
3) upbeat, minor chords
4) slow, female vocs up front, chill
5) “hello kitty”, guit/bass/drums, mellow rock
6) mellow w/ fuzzy choruses and sections
7) synth laden, chill feel
8) synth up a notch, lush melodic Yo La Tengo
9) upbeat urgent beat, yay! Great trademark dealer sound
10) chill pretty cover of Anarchy in the UK if that’s possible, almost silly in its irony, blatant
11) upbeat pretty fuzzy-soft trademark sound
12) almost Beat Happening vocal
approach to this mellow rocker
13) trademark quiet-loud indie rock
14) hooky chorus, ends cold
