La enésima maravilla surgida de San Francisco, cantera inagotable de bandas empeñadas en radiografiar casi todos los aspectos del pop y el rock de raíz sesentera, responde al nombre de The Fresh & Onlys.
La banda, proyecto que comparten Tim Cohen y Shayde Sartin, va más allá del simple revival para picotear de aquí y de allá arrimándose ya sea al rock de los cincuenta, al garage elástico o al pop inmaculado de los Byrds
The Fresh & Onlys are an American rock band. They were formed in San Francisco in 2008 by Tim Cohen of Black Fiction, bassist Shayde Sartin and guitarist Wymond Miles. A year later they recruited drummer Kyle Gibson. They are a key band in what has been described as San Francisco’s “new garage rock” movement,but their sound is equally aligned with pastoral psychedelia, brooding new wave, western twang, and jangly literate 80’s guitar pop.
The band’s catalog has found homes on several record labels including Woodsist, Captured Tracks, In The Red, Sacred Bones, and Castle Face. Their most recent work has been released by Mexican Summer including the full length Long Slow Dance released in September 2012, followed by the Soothsayer EP in late 2013.
In 2017, they announced their seventh studio album Wolf Lie Down which is to be released on August 25, 2017, via Sinderlyn. According to a press release, it was primarily written and recorded by Cohen and Miles, with contributions from former members Sartin and Gibson, alongside James Baron.
