Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-09-18
Fans of Raincoats, Slits, Faun Fables, Headcoats, Vivian Goldman, God is My Co-Pilot pay attention. Three women who pay less attention to heavy instrumentation/traditional song structure than the sheer fun of vocalization and stripped down drums and guitar noodles. The effect is altogether familiar yet baffeling. Is this some brand new form of indie anti-folk or is this some sort of flashback to late 70’s London hipster café/Laundromat music? Definitely worth dropping the needle on.

1) tape loop, vocs/percussion, strange effect
2) 12 string/pump organ dark gothic feel
3) simple marching feel, girl vocs heavy, simple Raincoats guitar/drums feel
4) simple guitar, drum, sparse minimal vocalizations
5) near tribal drum
6) more complex tribal, Raincoats feel again, denser more interesting
7) discordant guits drums and spooky flutes
8) cool old Cure guitar effect in this one adds to the spooky quality
9) almost “normal” feel in the vocals, epic melodies and tone somehow
10) melodic vocals, almost gratuitous but clearly looping, strange bookend to this cd when you think back to the first track
