Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-04-10
Lo-fi garagy noise posing as cute pop. Local wierdos have Japanese accented girl singing- lends themselves to comparisons to things like Takako Minikawa, Melt Banana. Vocals heavily overdriven in places (like melt banana). Good use of noise and toys, dissonance. Recorded on a cassette 4 track.

1) swingy big rock tom tom beat
2) wacky cute flute like sounds, upbeat punky
3) ballady mellow
4) starts mellow, turns screamy and thrashy then back
5) mellow cutesy w/ synth and melodies and Japanese accent
6) brief instrumental, disjunct
7) upbeat, w/ changes
8) infantile melodies and vocs, lo-fi silliness
9) sparse minimalism
10) disjunct, in Japanese
11) mellow feel
12) thrashy
13) synth, male vocs for a change
14) disjunct epic feel
