Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-09-12
Rock. Nasty nasty duo. Girl drums/vocs and treated heavy as fuck bass. Vocals are desperate, a glammy tinge but mostly heavy and almost grungey and most certainly dirty. Bass has a cool pitch changed tone that allows it to cover guitar as well, the drums are simple rock beats that are sexy, as can only a girl drummer lay down. Its all real basic at one level but advanced at another. Just good goddamned rock and roll. Great shit, do not miss. FCC clean. RIYL Cakelike, Breeders “pod” era, PJ Harvey's heavy stuff, Muffs, even Hole when Courtney was real.

(btw: their name comes from the opening line to the theme to the 50’s classic western film “High Noon”. How do I know this? I’m old. And I’ve played some obscure if cool cover songs in a band. Very much a non-sequitor with these two, a name you’d expect from a pretentious outfit from SF).

1) straight ahead head nodding rock with a glammy flare
2) mid paced rocker, minor toned and desperate
3) heavier toned, denser rock
4) real basic rock beat
5) driving pounding rock, almost punky in its delivery and yelling, great, simple
6) goddamn great heavy rock with a great hook, line, just a simple rock beat, shit is this ever good.
