Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-01-03 
Local dream pop outfit, bring to mind origins of dream-pop/shoegaze of the early/mid 90’s: Bands on labels like Slumberland, Creation, Too Pure. Helium, Stereolab, Bethany Curve, Swell, Ride, 7% Solution,Th’ Faith Healers, and of course My Bloody Godhead. Four songs, jangly, nice, “androgenous vocals”. Mastered by Kramer (Bongwater, Shimmy Disc producer of Albini’esque notoriety). Good stuff, scratches that itch.

1) (3:26) mid paced with tremelo’ed jangley guitars, driving bass and dreamy swallowed fem vocs, Helium/My Bloody Val
2) (4:11) early Stereolab, driving feel
3) (5:46) very Stereolab’y, driving beat, swallowed vocals and more air in this one
4) (9:33) a long dreamy strummy near-jam, seriously fades with about 2 minutes left but continues the dream with cool minimalism
