Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-09-10
Leeds (UK) band play psyche on par with Wooden Shjips, Sun Araw, Peaking Lights. Definitely scratch that itch. Psyche meanderings with vocals fairly in the front, echoed heavily. Spacemen 3 come to mind, Spiritualized. Not as Krautrocky as a lot of bands have become of late. Still, play with Lumerians, White Hills, Carlton Melton.

1) (8:49) quiet fade-in (careful!, can probably hit start 10 seconds early), trippy rhythmic soundbed tease, after about 2 min drums start to appear and the beat slowly builds, kicks in at 3 minutes, carlton melton but vocals come in echoey, psyche pop rest of way
2) (5:58) mid paced head nodder with organ, song structure, echoey vocs bring on heavy psyche, goes into double time gallop toward end, ends cold with noise because blends into next
3) (2:45) sustain coming out of previous track, ambient noise (play together?), fades into next as well
4) (4:51) bass line starts immediately over noise coming out of previous, slow sexy meandering psyche come down, ends cold
5) (7:33) slow 60’s psyche plod with tambourine and echoe soaring guitars, hypnotic, just a tad vocals tossed in
6) (5:04) pounding mid paced head nodder, Pink Floyd moment, total rock out blends into next trac, play on continous and fade out otherwise ugle cold end
7) (1:31) ambient trippiness coming out of last track (play together or fade out)
8) (4:01) another slow tamourine plod psyche lovefest, this time with vocals, again, it ends cold unless you allow to play into next ambient/noise piece
9) (3:51) ambient noise fest coming out of previous, quite nice to play on own, but fade up to start
