Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-11-05
Part of a package that HYPRK got us from Australia (shitfire, thanks david!!). Low fi, near living room quality strange gothy noisey acoustic instruments that come across far heavier, with vocals that are understated and usually mirror whats going on in the music. Drums are almost pots-pans in that they don’t figure high as in “rockin beats” or even have cymbals. Just understated strangeness that would fit in with Souixsie and the Banshees (yes, I think so), Joy Division, and then all your 4AD faves from the the goth days, or His Name is Alive. Zookeeper search the Deathbomb Arc record label and mix an artist or two in from them and you’ll be hitting it up, doggy style upside down super freak in zero gravity.

1) tribal drums, dark simple synth melody that vocals mirror, it seems to grow denser toward end2) low fi, noisey living room rock that’s kind of acoustic
3) off key dissonant acoustic guit + vocs
4) weird simple analog synth tones with vocs, old school creepy
5) acoustic strummy, ends cold
6) cool minor/eastern chordal qualities, vocals
7) slow weird plod
8) solo singing with minor weird guitar, ends cold
9) no vocs, weird plod with low fi everything including the interesting percussion that sounds like a zombie dragging a dead body across your dorm room floor
10) clunky pondering military marching snare, low fi underscore here
