Imajinary Friends of San Fransisco, California dive deep into kruatrock grooves and post-punk dreams with sexy counterculture lysergic experimentation. The music has way far-out quantum consciousness by the microgram dosing your ears with kaleidoscopic liquid sounds. This self-titled album is distributed by 300 Mics a label in San Fransisco with a limited edition clear vinyl with a blotter paper insert. The exotic blending of electronica and psychedelic rock is both danceable and exploratory perfect for your trip parties.
The Imajinary Friends are purposely obscure with very little media about them. Described as a collective with three core members: Tim Digulla of Tipsy; Ricky Maymi guitarist and founding member of Brain Jonestown Massacre; Travis Threlkel founding member Of Brain Jonestown Massacre and director at Obscura Digital where the album was mastered and overdubbed. Their debut “Lunchtime In Infinity” came out in 1994 they would wait 24 years before this self-titled release in 2017. During that time each musician was working with various projects and touring world-wide.
“L’Outsider” is the single with a guest appearance from Moogy with brilliant lead vocals sung in French. The song begins much like Can from Tago Mago era with club ready beats and dark kraut flavor. The vocals enter like an etherial psytrance spell sweeping the sound into visionary lights.
