The Fresh & Onlys
THE FRESH & ONLYS // thefreshandonlys.bandcamp.com/
The Fresh & Onlys began in 2008 as a collaboration between front man Tim Cohen, guitarist Wymond Miles and bassist Shayde Sartin. A jangly, literate guitar pop band whose early records were key in pioneering San Francisco’s modern garage rock movement. Known for their rhythmic swagger, tender melodies, and devotion to song craft; their sound is equally aligned with pastoral psychedelia, brooding new wave, post-punk, western twang, psych-rock, Dunedin jangle and garage rock rave-ups. “Wolf Lie Down” is their sixth full-length album and their debut for Sinderlyn Records. The album is full of anthemic garage rock burners and a haunted vividness now driven by the duo of Tim Cohen and Wymond Miles.
Extra fine songwriter and longtime bedroom-pop auteur Kelley Stoltz delivers on the promise so many of his records slyly hint at. Que Aura is the platonic ideal of a Kelley Stoltz record, which is a very exciting thing indeed. Stoltz embraces his best synth-pop tendencies, with this incredibly self-assured set of tender tunes, combining in his own hangdog fashion both a disco-lit abandon and the attendant post-party sighs of dread and remorse.
