The Fresh & Only’s Keep it Busy

The Fresh & Only’s make other musicians seem downright lazy.  As if touring were an excuse to not have to write new songs and you can just coast along playing the same setlist for two years before you get your ass back in the studio and find that you can’t recapture relevancy.  This San Francisco band don’t waste any time in the studio, recently recording their arguably greatest release yet, Play It Strange, in one week.  The hastiness was supposedly due to the band attempting to invigorate their studio work with the energetic and spooky nuances they pull off live.  From seeing a headlining New Year’s Eve show in The City with Sonny and the Sunsets, The Only’s can be refreshingly good and bad, but never boring — Much like Robert Pollard, this trait suits their prolific nature.
