The Fresh and Onlys on Soulterrain Transmissions

I love me a new Fresh and Onlys single and this one comes by way of an overseas label I haven't come across before Soulterrain Transmissions, but it looks like these guys have that naked Crocodiles full length as well. This must be carried somewhere stateside, but you never know, I've seen some of these import only.

THE FRESH & ONLYS "Yes Or No" 7"

Limited to 500 black, 200 white.
First 200 orders will receive white vinyl.

The Fresh & Onlys are four supremely talented (if a bit shaggy-looking) San Franciscans. The band is so comfortable with mixing and matching seemingly disparate genre elements that each song is its own minimusical movement. Really! (Not really). "Yes or No" b/w "Take Back The Night" serve as a teaser for 'Long Slow Dance', a big, beautiful record due this fall on Souterrain Transmissions.

Long Slow Dance (or “L.S.D.”) is a mature, anthemic and, in subtle ways, pretty weird album. And there you have it --Tim Cohen, Shayde Sartin, Wymond Miles, and Kyle Gibson--here to mess with your head and have you say “Thank you.”


  1. I think Mexican Summer did this for the USA.

  2. You're right!
    I heard about a split single that almost happened on Velocity of Sound.....

  3. Hahaha. Yeah, I could go on and on with "almosts" and VOSR.
