Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-10-23
Local band on Thee Oh See’s label Castle Face composed of members of Useless Eaters. Plundering tones of urgent 80’s synth punk, 00’s electroclash, 70’s no wave. Tones of horror goth, Cure meets Numbers cage fighting Gang of Four (on crank) with Devo refereeing. No Wave Post Punk of bands like Mars and The Contortions come to mind as well. Dissonant guitars, angular punky beats, Casio type synth tones, unabashed use of chorus-flange on both guitar and bass, robotic male vocs that sound affected English accent if you listen twice thereby sealing the deal. Laying it on thick.

1) (0:56) silly electro toy casio fun 2)* (2:23) urgent total pogo new wavey punky electroclash 3)* (2:29) heavily chorus’ed bassline, dissonant post punk, bordering on horror goth 4)* (2:23) this one is upbeat pogo’ing page torn straight from the No New York book with big dissonant guitar hook in your face 5) (1:55) super angular with silly synths super duper Devo feel 6) (3:29) heavy on the chorus pedals and kooky tribal beat, octave ranging non melodies 7) (0:44) slow sparse weird collage of bass and chirpy bending synth tones, slow casio beat 8) (1:00) brief urgent pensive 9)* (2:34) off time, searing guitar hook and trippy synths 10) (2:30) relatively straightforward feel to this, still angular 11) (3:00) very robotic and stilted, big octave guitars and chorus bass 12) (0:29) brief bass balm and electrobeat 13) (2:25) urgent pogo culmination of CD
