Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-11-07
Low fi pop bordering on toy pop with an overall childlike feel: blatant melodies, childlike vocals . However, its more along the lines of The Residents or Daniel Johnston than things too cutesy. Vocals put through distortion and the whole thing has a 4-track cassette feel that they boast about. Just strange enough to be be good.

1) low fi pop put through a bad radio
2) low fi pop making a joke of itself
3) upbeat with distorto melodic “vocs”, pitch changed
4) out of tune elementary school band feel
5) reminiscent of the Residents, strange
6) strange amalgam of music with spoken poetry
7) urgent driving feel that stops and goes
8) noisey disjunct interlude
9) “nobody loves me” has a twisted psychedlic flavor
10) bouncy urgent guitar centered
11) swingy rhythm incorporates a Residents flare once again
12) guitar treatments and bent synth notes continue this Residents tribute, along with sing-along type vocs
