Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-10-26
Maybe you can call this “chamber carnival” or “chamber avante-DIY”. “Toypop” appears to be the moniker this outfit has taken for over 20 years. All instrumental pieces that utilize piano and a plethora of toy instruments, giving this an overall childlike/naive quality to what is really pretty complex stuff. Birdsongs of the Mesozoic come to mind as well as The Residents, Dr. Seuss. I’m partial to the later more developed tracks.

1) brief, music box quality
2) carnival waltz
3) slow, melodic
4) upbeat, near folky feel
5) pensive minor feel, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic come to mind
6) simple piano melodic 7) simple swing
8) cute minimal waltz
9) very minimal, spookier, frog sounds in back
10) minimalism again, simple dark melody
11) dark haunting melody
12) brief, simple, collage of instruments
13) epic melody carried in organ
14) very simplistic childish, chopsticks feel
15) weird, flute and treatments, brief
16) dark slow, cabaret in a bottle of prozac
17) dark slow waltz
18) upbeat silly pop feel
19) tribal feel with congas and flute
20) slow meander, dissonant acoustic guitar, minimal percussion
21) childlike waltz with toy train whistle quality
22) backwards tracks with piano, creepy and cool, experimental chill quality, ends with a “babbling brook” and bird sounds
23) pretty piano melody, composition
