The Fresh & Onlys – “Soothsayer”
The endlessly prolific San Francisco band the Fresh & Onlys are a big part of the recent Bay Area psych-pop revivalist scene, but unlike so many of their peers, they display barely a trace of garage-rock raucousness in their songs. Instead, they’ve got a smoothed-out jangle that tends to turn their records into slow-burning growers. The band will follow up their 2012 album Long Slow Dance with a new EP called Soothsayer, out next month, and its title track and opener is exactly the sort of breezy car-radio jam that sets this band apart. Listen to it below.
Soothsayer is out 9/24 on Mexican Summer.
