Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-02-22 
Pretty. Echoey vocals, female fronted dreamy pop from our friends at Mexican Summer who gave us the recent Tamaryn, No Joy, Black Ryder and Best Coast. But unlike some of the previous this one lacks the My Bloody Valentine damage or the Holly Go Lightly worship and instead turns just plain pop, in the realm of the Cure, smattering of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cardigans. A certain 80’s or even 70’s nod to pure pretty pop, with jangly chorus pedaled guitars and a sheen of echo. Gleeful. Pretty stuff, that succeeds in melting even my solid black rock ice of a heart, destined to chart high on KZSU.

1) brief (awesome!) AM radio’esque intro to band that should be played with the next track for sure
2) lovely lilting dream pop with a certain 60’s Family Affair innocence, with birds chirping as a background to crystalline female vocals, Mazzy Star/Hope Sandoval?
3) very happy, shiny and pretty cute pop, no room for cynicism
4) very brief weird radio-like sample, play with next
5) even more upbeat shiny happy pop that smacks of early Cure if only cuz of spacey chorus effects
6) pretty and interesting guitar leads, upbeat pop
7) another very brief radio’esque sample
8) a bit trippier and ethereal in the pop
9) guitar arpeggios, drum machine, some sax, distant feel
10) another brief sample
11) little bit of funky disco’y pop going on here
12) more cute pop
13) dark familiar guitar theme to this, upbeat
14) again, a cool intro that should be played with following
15) upbeat, joyous, gleeful!
