The Fresh & Onlys – “Animal Of One”
Bay Area garage-psych greats the Fresh & Onlys announced House Of Spirits with “Bells Of Paonia,” which Tom described as “is a lush and pretty fuzz-guitar drone with plenty of starry-eyed melody in there” — i.e. something we’ve never heard before from these guys. “Animal Of One,” the follow-up single unveiled today, is an entirely different, um, animal. Rather, it’s closer to the same animal we’ve come to know and love, albeit with a heavy dose of guitar twang. Tim Cohen emits echo-laden bellows about forgiving, forgetting, and solitude, and the band cruises on victoriously toward the sort of fadeout you rarely hear anymore. Check it below.
House Of Spirits is out 6/10 on Mexican Summer.
