Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-01-07
Searing big guitar south of the border, minor keyed surf twang. Not trite or cute surf. So much of the genre falls into cookie cutter clichés but this veers into the heavy side, avoiding that. Anyone remember The Mermen? This reminds me of them (and they were epic, space-surf, super LOUD). All instrumental, all upbeat, with a certain south of the border feel, or a flamenco upbeat backbeat. Picture Clint Eastwood showing up on the beach, guns down all of Annette Funicello’s doofus friends and carries her off over his shoulder. The best part: This shit is Dutch (!?!), about as far away from the Southwest or SoCal as you can get.

1) (2:07) rhumba rockin!
2) (4:00) driving, crazy trumpet appears, entitled “Arabic” but sounds Spanish, may very well showcase the influence that Arabic immigrants had on mexico, Mexican Spanish, cooking, horsemanship, etc
3) (3:33) ramping up the south of the border tone
4) (3:22) slow, peaceful meander
5) (3:17) funny 60’s rock sitar plays lead, mid paced
6) (3:42) Spanish flare with acoustic guitar
7) (3:29) slower tom tom beat, mindful twangy and pretty
8) (3:19) upbeat and Mexican sounding with trumpet
9) (3:08) backbeat surf, twang, grab your board
10) (2:23) mellower, guitar melody carries it
11) (3:18) lovely soaring surfing guitar melody, trumpet appears later, spaghetti western boiling over, phone rings in middle and every listener will grope for their cell
12) (3:17) rhumba surf, dark trumpet figures in
13) (3:23) mellower, acoustic guitar strumming, soaring leads, minimal drums, no bass
14) (2:32) upbeat, bouncy fun
15) (3:27) very pretty feel, almost soundtrack’y, pleasant
