Fresh & Onlys

The Fresh & Onlys have done a lot of growing up since putting out their first record with us in 2009. Here's what people said about their (still excellent) debut record:

“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

“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

“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
