The Fresh & Onlys
It’s such a joy when a strong band gets even stronger, delivering arecord people will talk about years from now. Welcome to ‘Long SlowDance,’ the Fresh & Onlys’ fourth album in as many years. This thing’s a breakthrough; the band is joyous, confident--almost dangerous.‘L.S.D.’ teems with Morricone-esque flourishes and seemingly disparate genre elements. Recorded on the same reel-to-reel that Warren Zevon
did “Werewolves of London,” these instantly compelling songs demand multiple listens. It’s both the San Francisco act’s most cohesive work to date and a sprawling selection of stoner-anthems.
