Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-09-11 
From South Africa this band sounds far more western than African, but the influence of their homeland permeates in a very interesting and unique way, if unexpectedly. Some of this has a strange 80’s tone, some a near Pere Ubu or Pop Group urgency and dissonance, but all of it is inexplicable besides calling it pop or rock or some other pidgeonhole. Cool stuff, give it a try.

1) upbeat, danceable, 80’s chorused guitar appears with vocals, pensive
2) guitar arpeggio and funky bass appears along with the afropop sentiment, echoey and trippy midway
3) afropop solidifies on this track, straight up funky trippy rock with vocals, looped guitar lines straight out of Rhodesia
4) strange desperate rock feel, afropop is dropped for a near low fi production feel, then it slips away into a smarmy exotica thing, weird and cool but afropop too, epic breaks, bridges and ending for sure
5) bouncy and peppy in an afropop way but heavy too, huh?
