If Matmos are the best-dressed fellas in San Fran these days then The Fresh & Onlys are competing for worst-dressed. I mean, just take a look at these dudes. They look like they still get dressed by their mamas. But what do they care? They make killer psych-influenced garage rock that wipes away nearly anything else of its ilk being made these days. After the amazing and amazingly received Playing It Strange LP last year, the band could have easily taken a well-deserved hiatus, but aw hell naw: they’re already back with a new EP titled Secret Walls that’s due April 26, courtesy of Sacred Bones.
Unless you’ve been living in a garbage can for the past couple weeks, you also know that the SF chaps are basically going to be on a nonstop touring spree from now til the end of
time April. Catch ‘em on the road while you can, cause odds are they won’t be back around again for a while. Like at least two weeks.
