The Fresh & Onlys never leave mom's house

Blake Gillespie

San Franciso's Fresh & Onlys are not aiming to blow-out your speakers with shitgaze noise; that ain't what they're about. The Fresh & Onlys would rather drop a Kinksian twanger with some “aah-ohhh-aahh” harmonies than bury its beauty in the fuzz.

Like a good acid trip, The Fresh & Only have come in favorable waves this year with a self-titled spring LP on John Dwyer's Castle Face Records, an EP on Chuffed, this fall's Grey-Eyed Girl on Woodsist, with final touches being put to another LP on In The Red. Basically, the group intends to run the gamut of psych/garage rock labels.
