Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-09-07 
Cool mix of surfy garage psyche with dissonant driving pop, like Sonic Youth meets Best Coast in a fuzz psyche hail storm. Male and female vocs trade off, sing together, great guitar and predominantly surfy drums, but driving urgency in lots of places.

1) (2:18) go go surfy dirty garage
2) (3:08) slower near-bluesy swing, smarmy with cool guitars, fem vocs in front
3) (2:25) driving feel, urgent
4) (3:59) slow simple beat, fem vocs
5) (2:11) driving urgent surfey, sonic youthy
6) (3:09) fuzz psyche guit in front, tom tom beats, cool breaks with echoey guitar, Kim Gordon vocs
7) (0:58)FCCS
8) (4:08) cool noisey brief sample at strart, then mindful dreamy quiet pop with girl/boy vocs, builds to surfness
9) (4:14) trippy guitar and simple pop beat, cute girl/boy vocs
10) (3:39) dark gothy feel almost, driving tom beats
11) (3:09) acoustic guitar and female vocs smack of 4AD dreaminess
