Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-11-02
“Low-fi” is one of those words that is overused and almost a diss. Well it shouldn’t be and this band proves it: Good good playing and recording quality in its realm. Organs, guitars, lots of fem vocals, real drums, and a certain psyche glaze that just makes this all work in a very splendid way. Tracks are brief, so use it to throw a quick wrench in your set and “fulfill your afile ‘requirement’” (ahem, afile honor). Fans of Luxerious Bags take note.

1) will get the crowd going without the standard “beat”, more guitar based, soaring melodies, great indie rock sorry brick for the adjective)
2) kinda punky, simple repetitive rock
3) organ present, low fi’isms work for good garage psyche along with good beat
4) cool bent 7th’ish chord makes this nice and tension filled but groovy
5) experiment in repetitious guitar and fem vocs
6) upbeat and fun beat, lowfi really works in this instance
7) simple fem vocs, drums, guitar, nice!!
8) pretty guitar, not noisey
9) 10) low fi I when you think of the word, simple drums, fem vocs, organ melody
11) upbeat fun, seriously
12) brief simple guitar based rocker
13) upbeat fun rocker!
14) funny treatise on not moving here to CA, upbeat rockin but not too intense, good
15) brief:punky, girls yelling over simple beat about something, sale at Ligne Roset?
