Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-05-25
Local artists: A cool mix of funky, electro, with choice guitars, flutes, keys under heavily British accented female voice overs/spoken word reading the works of Gertrude Stein. Jazz overtones are reeled in by interesting electro drums and cool mixing/production (e.g. hard panned guitars). Spoken words are interesting philosophical commentaries and queries that surprisingly manage to avoid pretention. Cool stuff, for fans of later King Crimson, Primus, Soft Machine.

1) funky, classy piano and flute, loopy and rather trippy
2) electrodance funky, congos, groovy guitar, vocals appear
3) cool upright bass slowly walking then goes double time and swingy; she talks about “starlight” vs “moon and sunlight”
4) upbeat driving and melodic, slightly mathy; “any religion” is her subject along with “singularity”
5) funky smooth jazz feel with saxophones
6) upbeat bouncy; subject is flowers, high flute is cheery
7) piano driven funky blues rock – food now?
8) darker, soulful w/ baritone sax, funky organ, upbeat; “why?” she asks a lot
9) funk, w/ hand clap beat and love rollercoaster style guitar
10) pensive driving beat, smacks of later King Crimson in a serious Fripp/Levin style; “theres no use in anything”
11) super cool upright bass driven, skipping beat, trombones, funny word associations sorta
12) Primus styled bass driven, far more “rockin”, subtle
13) quiet start and dreamy tone w/ harp arpeggios and subtle rhumba beat, pretty; “beautiful beautiful”, strings and prettiness abounds, appropriately
