Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-10-19
Fans of Low, American Analog Set, sleeping in your clothes, don’t miss this. Dreamy fuzzy blissout chillout simple pop and ambient noise pieces, restrained boy/girl vocals, slightly off-key. Organ and fuzzy guitars, stripped drums, echoes everywhere, reminiscent of early 90’s dissonant pop a la Helium, Henry’s Dress, 18th Dye, Swirlies, etc. Lovely stuff, should be bottled and classified a Schedule II narcotic.

1) vaguely aquatic, looping ambient dreamscape, brief
2) low fi fuzzy dream pop, boy/girl vocs a la 18th Dye, Henry’s Dress
3) downtempo dreamy a la Low, American Analog Set
4) chill echoey guitar and slightly offkey female vocs, Low worship
5) organs and spaciness, simple beat and chill out tone
6) plodding, offkey male vocs, slow backwards masked looping noise sound bed until some chords appear, disappear, someone call the paramedics
7) ambient piece: dreamy and gorgeous
8) stripped down slow with a subtle trumpet tone, total somnambulance
9) soundtracky, sci-fi’ish ambient soundscape
10) yowza, bendy bassline and overall despondent lovely dreary beat with sad girl vocals, nice
11) incredible version of Blue Moon!!! Starts ambient and chill and then narcotic and then explodes Swans-style, then goes back to the narcolepsy
