Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2010-11-13
Dream/noise indie rock. Upbeat, melodic yet dense and interesting. This is how I’d define GREAT “indie rock”. Listenable-interesting, no teen/commercial pandering or dumbed down melodies/themes. Instead, guitar bass and drums either present a brain balm or a full-on cleansing. Male vocals, though belted out, are restrained in the mix for great effect, guitar is well played with echo, reverb and perfect amount of trippy whammy bar, or else layers of chords, but always providing melody. Powerful drums and bass. This is really great stuff that I pray I can experience live at a small local club before they end up at Coachella or some other hell. For fans of The RockATeens, Sonic Youth, Pixies (for sure), and The Medea Connection. Dang! The 12-13 track combo borders on epic. Shit, I’m gonna become an indie rock convert soon if this is what we keep getting.

1) noisey weird brief intro that should be played with next
2) pounding beat, dream noise rock, nice and epic
3) upbeat, faster pounding beat that’s is peppy
4) balls out rockin, dream rock meets punk rock? Good passionate upbeat driving
5) blends right out of previous (play together?) upbeat rockin-ass stuff
6) kicken ass pop rock, with a certain heaviness, something Pixies going on with soaring guitar
7) I like this drum beat, it has a lazy heaviness about it despite the power of the whole song (girl drummers usually take this approach to great results)
8) heavy rockin, desperate feel, tone
9) upbeat rockin, really driving, echoey guitar melodies really take hold
10) heavy tone, intense, beautiful upbeat and driving
11) upbeat, really positive galloping noisey indie rock that I swear with save the world, PLAY THIS IF YOU CLAIM TO LOVE I-R!
12-13) (12 is an intro that is optional) great beat driven, with layers of guitar laid on with a subtle, just a tiny pinch of Kevin Shields/MBV bendiness (instead of destroying/exploiting that sound like so many bands I send to amoeba do), great soaring melodies with guitar steal the show, with a trippy noisey false ending at ~20 seconds reminaing (I recommend killing the track there cuz all that comes back is a studio dingleball)
