Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-06-14
Cool psychey, trippy, instrumental rock for fans of post rock to psyche, a la Acid Mothers or Do Make Say Think. Good rhythms, good tones. Nothing insane or heavy, just good interesting cerebral material.

1) rhythmic low growl intro, then a pleasant swinging stoney beat with trippy instruments and tones, very psyche but builds in intensity
2) blends in from previous, sorta pretty noodly guitar work
3) a strange 12 bar blues interpretation
4) nice rhythmic, near downtempo with an eastern flare, strange church organ thing takes over midway then it just jams on
5) mellow with nice strings and piano, still trippy though
