Description

The Fresh & Onlys are set apart by an endearingly fussy devotion to songcraft and an understated and unfakeable weirdness… their possibly unhealthy familiarity with garage-rock arcana is balanced out by a keen songwriter’s eye, and their obsession with the past is elevated by genuine affection and love” -Pitchfork, “While still jangly and poppy, it’s also a little gloomy, a lot new wave, with buzzy Joy Divison bass, squalls of wild psychedelic guitar, plenty of ooooh’s and aaaah’s, tribal drumming, angular riffing, a perfect mix of sixties jangle, and cold/new wave gloom. The production is lush, but also weird, and tripped out, ethereal and gauzy…definite contender for year ends best” -Aquarius Records, “These songs are straightforward, to the point, and fully endowed with the feelings engendered by decades of guitar rock. They’re powerful examples of not just the songwriting prowess of Tim Cohen and Shayde Sartin, but of a fundamental understanding for how a good guitar line is an elemental force” -Dusted, “San Francisco’s The Fresh & Onlys stood out both onstage and off, looking like a nomadic weed tribe with dark secrets and sounding like wild evangelicals with deep musical gifts” -FADER
