Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-09-29
Channeling late 70’s London post-punk, this band fits right in with Pop Group, Lilliput, The Fall, Slits, Delta 5, Glaxo Babies. Former member of Shoplifting brings angular and dissonant guitars, simple if disjunct beats, tropical, male and female vocals that sound very “Manchester” despite being a Seattle duo. At times you expect them to just launch into full on post-punk dub-reggae a la The New Age Steppers/Slits. But it never happens. Just keeps rockin. Great stuff.

1) postpunk angular dissonance w/ drum machine
2) shuffling beat, organ smacks of The Fall, instrumental
3) very Glaxo Babies, dark and menacing, psychotic
4) slow, dark, dense with harmonica
5) minimal guitar, pretty, minor, instrumental
6) simple mid paced w/ strange little synth blurbs and tones weirdness, instrumental
7) fem vocals on this rhumba carribean flavored sweet little ditty
8) something more latin carribean to the simple beats, sparse guit playing, urgent chorus
