Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-02-03
Driving psyche, jangle and jangley, but not so much retro 60’s as a mix of new psyche, 80’s, 60’s. Fans of Byrds, Spacemen 3, Wooden Shjips, Spiritualized will like. Male vocs, tambourine, reverb drenched guitars might sound like a retro 60’s band. Though they use the 60’s format and give a good nod, this stuff is very contemporary, taking the aforementioned bands and sentiment to the next level. Strange electro bass and various ‘isms that even channel the dead ghost of Suicide. This is some kick ass stuff. What else would you expect from Hozac?

1) (2:26) full on jangle upbeat swinging
2) (2:11) new order bassline but total spiritualized/spacemen 3 jangle psyche follows
3) (3:05) upbeat has a different rockin element about the driving psyche that is novel and cool
4) (3:15) harder driving
5) (3:40) nice soaring guitars and ambience with simple tambourine beat underneath and keys, pretty
6) (4:33) the bassline sounds exactly like a Wooden Shjips song but the overall song isn’t the same, echoey and trippy vibrato/reverb psyche, almost epic, might be fun to play with the WS song that it emulates
7) (4:09) driving dark bass with upbeat overall melody
8) (4:34) organ intro fade in, full on slow psyche worship with tambourine as only percussion
9) (2:47) big ripping 60’s reverb dripping psyche, getting to the point, not fucking around now, nice, perfection
10) (2:55) big bass in intro, pretty, tribal tom tom drums finally pick up and make this one driving (6 seconds dead air at end)
11) (3:32) pulsing heavy electro feel comes out of nowhere but heavy and welcome and intense, wooden shjips and even suicide come to mind
