Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-01-02 
Trippy spacey guitar centered psyche, with gothy folk moments (a la Current 93) at times. Mostly a “guitar exploration”, with lots of echo and reverb and slow phrased anti-guitar playing but also some undeniably beautiful moments too. Vocals are on the line of indecipherable melodics, adding embellishments. For fans of Flying Saucer Attack, John Abercrombie, Low/Alan Sparhawk.

1) shimmery fuzzy noodly guitar with mildly melodic vocalizations
2) a droney vaguely eastern/Beatles tone
3) devolving chords and near mumbled vocalizations, like Cobain OD’ing on the couch with a guitar, picks up a melody in the end
4) near gothy folkie feel with guitars and soaring melodies
5) heres the undeniably beautiful moment, slow spacey drony and lovely
6) dissonant strumminess, vaguely melodic and songlike, with vocals
7) picking with little licks, midway turns more droney with vocalizations
8) strummy and slightly melodic, with vocs
9) pretty, droney and spacey instrumental
