Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-12-19
Violin led instrumental post’ish rock, prog’ish psychedelic rock sent to us from our Croatian pals. Lush use of trippy electronics and effects, interestingly played violin, and solid guitar bass and drums. This is hard to pidgeon-hole, but sometimes reminds me altogether of Can, The Dirty Three, later Stereolab/American Analog Set, stuff on Ninja Tune, and Acid Mothers Temple. Experimental elements for sure in its beautiful improv feel. This could fit in anyone’s set, from indie rock to electronica to psychedelic space. Two discs: the first has 7 longish but radio friendly tracks, the second is an incredible 69 minute epic jam. Pick any.

Disc 1:
1) a beautiful minimal intro with Fender Rhodes and violin, finally reaches a point where the band explodes but then goes down again, then after 7 min the full wallop of full near kraut-prog rock arises
2) super cool proggy post-whatever, chill with violin, breakdown toward end to slowness
3) starts with subtle trippy sounds, guitar comes in mellow arpeggio and chill song evolves
4) slow spacey start to an upbeat rhythm, sad violin melodies, hook
5) upbeat jam with Fender Rhodes tinkling in foreground
6) very chill, incorporates some heavily treated vocalizations
7) skippy beat, chill, grows almost subsonic quiet after 8 minutes then slowly comes back and ends up rocking out like it hasn’t yet, wow!

Disc 2: 69 minute jam incorporating all of the above into something of epic proportions.
