Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-05-25
LA dark rock with melodic fuzzed out female vocals. On the dark-doom side of psyche-dream-rock, but with enough melodic nods to stay in in fuzz pop realm. Things are fuzzy but the guitar has a certain dark twang. Elements of psyche for sure, especially with use of sitar in places that veers into straight “east meets west” flare. For fans of Lost Cause, and especially Pain Teens.

1) dark midpaced rock, with guitar melody/theme, minor spooky and cool
2) slower mysterious, eastern flare, very much Pain Teens
3) upbeat, more melodic and approaching fuzzy pop
4) heavy head nodding beat
5) heavy and simple, relatively brief
6) fade-in dirgey beat, a certain Butthole Surfers element, but slow melodic vocal themes , cool one with slight psyche elements
7) upbeat driving noise pop with melodic vocs
8) very tribal and eastern with sitar
9) upbeat, rocking bouncing
10) dream rocky for sure, mid and sultry
11) upbeat with sitar in face, bollywood turned indie rock
12) slow somewhat soaring triplet ballad
13) solid head nodding beat, sitars are heavy creating very “east meets west” tone
14) slow soaring and big, dreamy with noise psyche guitar
15) big deep resonant beat with heavy sitar, instrumental
