Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2014-10-07 
Cassette transferred to CD. Sounds like simple early synths and drum machines treated with analog effects. Kinda 80’s synth rock feel. Nice stuff made nicer because of the natural low fi quality that cassette instills. Cool stuff, all instrumental. Short, radio friendly tracks mostly. Has an old sound but I believe this is new stuff out of St Petersburg, Florida. A testament as to the nice affect that cassette tape instills. Fans of old Residents, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Orange Cake Mix.

1) (0:41) brief minimal beat
2) (2:20) 80’s styled electrobeat, melodies, made nice via cassette low fi
3) (2:01) mellower, almost chill electrobeat
4) (2:07) slow more plodding beat
5) (4:21) cool mid paced, nice tones
6) (1:53) dark chill, down tempo
7) (2:44) mid paced cool
8) (2:28) bigger, “over the head” beat
9) (3:06) mid paced upbeat
10) (1:48) almost steppy, funky beat
11) (2:31) chill, very chill wave
12) (1:40) dark tones, beatless
13) (1:49) can play 12-13 together, beat picks up, still dark
14) (3:05) chill, percussion but not a big beat
15) (2:44) noisier, throbbing, like gristle
16) (2:35) a simple beat with melodic synths, cool like early Residents
17) (1:29) a demented waltz
18) (3:21) mellow, cool, interesting
19) (2:18) chill, slow steady beat
