The Fresh and Onlys

The Fresh and Onlys are part of a closely connected faction of rock bands burning bright in San Francisco right now that includes Thee Oh Sees, Sonny and the Sunsets, the Sub Pop-signed Kelley Stoltz, and the Hardly Art-signed Sandwitches, all of whom draw influences from raw 60s garage pop and freewheeling psychedelia . The four-piece Fresh and Onlys releases recordings in a prolific stream; their latest is last year's Secret Walls EP, brooding and thickened with walls of reverb. Their music sometimes hints at folk with its loose and languid melodies, but later this year they'll release a new full-length that will break the mold a bit more by including what the band's bassist calls "Nashville-tuned guitar[s]."
