Notable Locals: The Fresh & Onlys

Posted By on Tue, Sep 2, 2008 at 10:12 AM

Black Fiction's Tim Cohen seems to keep pretty busy these days, band-wise, but one of his projects in particular recently caught my ear. The Fresh & Onlys is Cohen's band with Shayde Sartin, Raphi Gottesman, Wymond Miles, Heidi Alexander, and Grace Cooper, and the sound is deceptively sweet when you listen to the lyrics about shady friends, nuclear disasters, and demons in your head. Taking influence from acts ranging from 13th Floor Elevators to Tall Dwarfs and Swell Maps, the band's lo-fi, lysergic sound is haunting, crossing borders between folk, garage, and slanted pop. Check out their MySpace offerings here. —Jennifer Maerz
