Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2011-05-25
Veers from pop to post rock, free jazz with noise to chamber pop. But all have an accessible pop quality, simple songs, really, with heavily layered trippy embellishments. Male vocs buried in echo, interesting drums and instrumentations including chamber pop type things. Cool new and different stuff. Try any track really.

1) mid-upbeat simple pop with spacey and trippy embellishments abounding
2) fuzzy simple pop, simplistic almost amateurish drums, trippiness really swells
3) starts a simple song then the drums take control with urgency, the thing shifts back to a more complex thing, huh?
4) tom tom beat, fuzzy tones , takes a pretty big turn after ~4 min to become more orchestrated with brass and woodwinds, chambery
5) slower dark sparser, bluesy sorta
6) soulful vocs, overdubs, a capela near beat-box vocalizations
7) slightly post rock, mathy proggy breaks and feel
8) funky, smooth beat, trippy low end digeridoo (?) keys juxtaposed with vocs
9) free jazz feel over a drone
10) bowed bass/cello with harmonized vocals feels chamber pop
11) downtempo beat with a rather silly feel, fuzzy bass synth, found sounds, choral vocs
12) bird sounds/environmental, to start, then a slow pleasant beat with sax and bells, a simple nice song, outtro with bells and sounds, long and chill ending
