Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-04-04
Lovely vocal centered pop with much loved KZSU favorite Eleni Mandell, Inara George (The Bird and The Bee) and Becky Stark (Lavendar Diamond) teaming up for crystalline 3 part harmonies and doubled up backups. Incredibly lovely, definitely a powerhouse “supergroup” of female vocalists of the day. Songwriting duties are shared and the music is top notch with a flare in the traditional direction, as in epic timeless 50’60’s songs. Reminiscent of the best stuff that Motown Decca or Dot ever did. Fantastic stuff that would fit as easily at Noise Pop as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. See also Eleni Mandell’s solo stuff (her most recent “Miracle of Five” is most poppy, most similar).

1) upbeat, pretty, with full band, lilting pretty guitar melodies
2) slow dance swing romantic
3) shoo bop shoo bops, slightly up retro feel w/ sax solo
4) lovely slow song with a “cheesy” middle spoken part, very Motown
5) triplet retro feel with organ
6) pop perfection, upbeat slightly surfy beat
7) fantastic vocal epic with Eleni’s guitar, a bluegrass/twang flare
8) fun spacey sound, cheerful pop with really pretty guitar
9) upbeat swingy slight blues lilt
10) slight western flare, holy shit holy shit holy shit
