Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2009-11-29
Interesting duo makes “dance-punk and art-rock” with a bank of cool synth tones, drum rhythms and noise sources. When this isn’t bobbing along with upbeat rock its injected with a flavor of Afro-pop that works in a head-scratching way. Really cool stuff, for fans of old Troubleman Unlimited bands, Dance Disaster Movement, Make Up, David Byrne, Fela Kuti. From Kansas City of all places.

1) cool catchy electro-tinged rock with slightly fuzzed vocals
2) upbeat afro-pop feel somehow, bouncy
3) intrumental, near exerperimental kalimba’ish noise
4) peppy poppy beat, almost Kraut-rock, with long phrased vocalisms and cool noises
5) wasn’t my imagination: theres an afro-pop sorta thing in here for sure. Long’ish head nodding track for all you barefoot partying hipsters
6) brief ambient piece with sleighbells
7) funky pulsing undeniable beat, desperate vocals and hypnotizing simple synth
8) instrumental: over/under polyrhythms of afro-pop really ring true on this one, quite pretty really
