Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-01-17
Low-fi anti-music that would sound great 12 years ago (along with bands like Space Needle, Neutral Milk Hotel, etc) but now just sounds dated and tiresome, sophomoric. Okay, that said, its worthy in this overproduced era of crappy sensitive indie rock, harkening back to a more organic day when Guided By Voices ruled the earth (maybe “low-fi” needs a “post” comeback?). Cool use of living room sounds, drum machines, found sounds, spontaneous noise factors, I like it for that alone, the improv spontaneous underproduced noise element.

1) mopy amalgam of drum machine, bowed strings, etc, aimless and pointless
2) beat comes and goes, da da’esque
3) dark, no beat, like someone left the tape recorder going
4) another oppressive drum machine beat and “look ma, dissonance”
5) yawn, slow beat huh?
6) FCCs
7) good low fi noise jam, improv
8) FCC
9) voiceover, beat and noise guitar becomes way weird percussion and distorto
10 ) FCC
11) noisey, swirling with synth tone
12) minimal casio drum beat, electro bass and repeated “I got very severe withdrawls”, yawn
13) FCC
14) minimal beat, droney noise bed, fairly brief
15) decent noise improv jam, lyric free
