Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-03-27
Did someone say psyche rock freakout? This band proves they can wrangle up that bandwagon as good as any. Taking their previous excellent releases to the next psyche level. Good long form improv psyche. Fans of Carlton Melton, etc.

1) (4:14) driving psyche rock with swirling background synth and guitar, almost cliché but good cuz it sounds familiar
2) (11:49) nice noisey underlayer of samples, voices, a krautrock early Stereolab rhythm and feel dominates, though slightly drunk/stoned, less determined, makes this really spaced out
3) (5:43) heavy rock a la Loop, good heavy psyche even with a drum “solo”, psychedelic, man, whoa!, long fade-out caution
4) kick ass driving psyche with a super cool middle part, total space out far out, eventually finds its legs again
5) (14:00) soaring synths and drums intro this then a full on wank fest with the guitar and looped drums, pushing ADD to the limit
