Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-03-31 
Retro rock from Dionysus records. Female vocals, melodic and crunchy guitars and beats that smack more of New York 60’s influenced new wave a la Blondie or Patty Smith than straight Shangri Las or the Seeds. Moments of Pretenders too. Lots of Farfisa. A couple awkward studio moments where the guitars or the vocals don’t really translate. Something tells me this band doesn’t record well but smokes butt live.

1) surfy beat, hooky “love sick” chorus
2) more standard late 70 pop wave feel
3) more patty smith/blondie melodic type feel, but super slick hooky melodic, almost mainstream but not lyrically
4) jangly ballady
5) standard pop rock feel
6) very retro sock hop feel
7) upbeat pop rockin melodic, sorta so-so vocal breaks
8) simple basic rock
9) smarmy love song, slower swingy almost slow dance, heavy farfisa
