Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-10-27
I’m a sucker for living room recorded madness that passes as pop to someone with brain damage like me, but probably closer to psyche experimental noise-pop to you “normals” out there: these are songs, they have beats, they have melodies, but they are concocted with treated found objects and simple cheap casio or Arp synthesizers and pretty girl voices (Vonnegut was correct when he wrote in Cats Cradle that there is nothing more beautiful than the voices of young women). I think that Yo La Tengo longs to go back to this recipe, in fact I know they do. So theres your CD review. The rest is up to you: cue up a few seconds or just cue up any highlighted track and let it rip, Brownian Motion style. Let the track inspire what you choose next.

1) brief, amalgam of voice, synth, echoey’ness
2) slow, downtempo with noises swirling, chills a bit toward end
3) slow paced with a vague eastern harmonium sounding instrument, buried fem vocals, chill and cool
4) pretty, chill percussion and almost ambient
5) upbeat, noisey slightly and a tad more pensive
6) this has the narco head sway that I am looking for in lieu of sex
7) starts with a plodding minimal near noise thing but synths and vague melodies join the fray to make for a musical if psychedelic acid flashback
8) Yo La Tengo’ish sexy beat smothered in spaciness that makes me want to wrap myself around a soft body, but I’m a pervert and a sucker for a really good sexy song
9) the most “songlike” of the bunch, with a drumset beat, a clarinet melodie, cool and just plain musical, I like
10) brief, percussive
11) amalgam of minimal sounds culminating in a composition of good layered tones, guitars, musical, avoiding esotericism
