Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-03-28
Pretty advanced amalgam of psyche, garage, simple rock songwriting and even a pinch of indie rock. Raw enough to appeal to us college types, simple and straight enough to appeal to those looking for simple good indie rock/pop. Its like these guys are dirty deep down but could fake their way into a sorority house and dole out some serious spankings.

1) simple rock with repetitive chorus, epic in a Detroit sort of wa
2) upbeat rockin with a bounce
3) psychey guitar, midpaced high hat beat with a slight funk
4) almost a mellow ballad
5) cool drum beat/percussion, simple rock, gots a late 70’s Elvis Costello “pump it up” feel sorta
6) tom tom beat feel with echoey vocs
7)cover of Dead Moon song, classic sounding rock
8)a good beat you can dance to, good delivery and ironic, poppy but good
9) pretty damn rockin, good feel
10)swaggery swinging rock, with psychey echoing vocals
11) kinda weird, almost experimental with wacky synths and noise
12) basic rock beat, vocal delivery, hit quality- those of you looking for something close to indie rock play this track
