Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-11-13 
Bright cheery pop, sugary yet bitter sweet. Fans of all things Smiths wont want to miss, plus twee pop, noise pop stuff from the 90’s. Great stuff on the jangle side yet with just enough darkness to keep it cynical and groovy. Male vocals, pretty guitars, smarmy nice drums, solid bass that swirls around the girls’ hips and go-go boots. Really excellent phase shifters used tastefully. Great stuff for your inner indie pop slave. Fans of Belle and Sebastian, Robin Hitchcock/Soft Boys, Orange Cake Mix, Dealership will like.

1) (2:53) smiths paced vocals and overall upbeat feel, bright bitter sweet feel, tone
2) (2:00) waltzy with dreamy slide lap steel, noddy and pretty near alt-country circa mid 90’s 4AD records
3) (3:03) bright cheery pop
4) (2:21) 80’s big snare beat and general upbeat tone
5) (3:26) midpaced slow dance head nodding twangy feel, pretty, with high quality phase shifter
6) (2:11) upbeat swingy fuzzy feel
7) (3:07) very upbeat and bouncy a la Belle and Sebastian or the like
8) (2:14) upbeat perfect pop
9) (3:34) Orange Cake Mix feel, airy pretty smarmy with lilting piano hook
10) (2:28) upbeat cheery pop
11) (1:39) slow swing, heavy echo/reverb, dark and alt western almost again, 4AD’ish
