Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-11-06 
Very dreamy and chill indie rock with understated female vocals that has moments of ambient narco-drone, worldy-downtemepo (see Ekova) and simple lovely shoegazey rock. Fem vocs that, when not buried, ring of Sandy Denny (Fairport Convention) and Natalie Merchant (maybe?). Hidden Shoal Records sends us the best stuff ever these days and this is no exception.

1) chill intro, sounds, looped female vocs, brief
2) poppy somehow, fem vocs up front with pleasant piano taking second seat to the cool chill skippy yet upbeat drumbeat
3) chillness, super narco downtempo beat, dreamy vicodin love
4) upbeat, strange Talking Heads worldy rhythm feel to it, fem vocs
5) nice ambient noise that becomes dark when contrasted with piano and dreamy fragile vocs, slow and trippy
6) very slow sparse and lovely, a vicodin dream gone off the tracks, into a bed of aromatic blooming lupine, with a warm sun above… wait, where am i?
7) upbeat almost where the fem vocals ring pure and true and it all smacks of what Fairport Convention might have envisioned while astralprojecting on 750mics on tank hill in 1969
8) slow but consistent and pretty
9) boxharp strumming, pretty and plodding feel, lovely melodies with a certain sadness and really fanstastic noise embellishments, wow
10) upbeat indie poppy, if a still chill, Natalie Merchant does come to mind
11) cool slow weird to develop beat with a hypnotic looping sound bed
12) trippy somewhat brief solo vocal with eerie noise sound bed with subtle melodies, ends cold, wow (this whole cd is great shit)
