Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-08-14 
An elegant mix of avante-experimental/noise and indie-pop, reminding me of when I first heard Neutral Milk Hotel. Very interesting bent stuff, loops, pitch change, gated reverb, excellent treatments but all kept very musical, female/male vocs. Elements of krautrock, Can, definitely rear their head in this. This should make just about every dj on kzsu happy, from noisesters to popsters and all in between.

1) for first ~4 minutes melodic, indie pop through a meat grinder: looping twisted noise/melody, fucked up beat, then a more noisey element takes over after which a noise rock tone re-emerges
2) waltzy, this one feels more sing/songwriter, somber, but subtle noise elements keep it interesting, especially the last 30 seconds out-tro
3) after an almost experimental first several minutes it eventually kicks into an upbeat driving proggy feel remiscent of Can or something krautrock, what Stereolab ripped off
4) wow, big booming noise juxtaposed over toy-piano circus pop, twisted
5) happy Can-like, with female vocals joining in, proggy in that krautrock sense, still bent and treated, long track is not boring but more hypnotic
6) First half: plodding strangeness, with parakeet sounds and lots going on, noisey, then moves on to second half which picks up the pace then ends up waltzy
